History Of Our Cases
Keith Davies and Farrukh Saif have a history of success.
In 2009, our teams were mobilized to provide healthcare services to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly NWFP) for six consecutive weeks. Later, in 2010, a catastrophic flood occurred in Sindh and Punjab, and our teams were able to reach the stranded victims and work day and night to assist them. It’s worth mentioning that this was the largest water disaster in the history of Pakistan.
In 2010, both Farrukh and Keith started voicing concerns about the misuse of the notorious Blasphemy law in Pakistan. In this matter, legal aid was provided to the victims of this controversial law. Since 2011, we have been relocating innocent victims of Blasphemy Laws to safe hideouts. In 2012, we successfully rehabilitated the victims of Maharabadi Islamabad, where hundreds of Christians were displaced by radicals enforcing Blasphemy Laws.
In June 2012, we assisted Shahzad Masih (also known as Sajid Masih), an individual accused of blasphemy, in securing his release from jail and successfully obtaining his acquittal from the blasphemy charges.
In 2012, we rescued Ryan Staton, a 16-year-old boy from Karachi, Pakistan, who had been accused of blasphemy. Later, in January 2013, we moved him to a haven, and he currently resides in the USA.
In 2013, we succeeded in winning the case of Barket Masih, a victim on death row due to blasphemy charges.
In 2013, more than a hundred families in Joseph Colony were targeted by radicals who tried to entangle a local Christian man in a blasphemy case, leading to the lynching of the entire Christian neighborhood. We have provided household items to the victims.
In 2013, we facilitated the relocation of Martha Bibi and her husband and daughter to Sri Lanka. She had also been sentenced to death by the Lahore High Court. Currently, she resides in the USA.
In 2013, Christian brothers Tariq Yousaf and Arif Yousaf from Wazirabad, Punjab, were charged under the controversial blasphemy law. Extremist Muslims burned dozens of churches and hundreds of houses in response. Fortunately, we could rescue Tariq Yousaf, but his brother, Arif Yousaf, was arrested by the police. In 2014, we facilitated Tariq’s relocation out of the country and continued to contest Arif Yousaf’s case.
In April 2014, we successfully rescued George Naz, a victim of the blasphemy law, and relocated him to Thailand. He is currently residing in Canada.
In Pakistan, we successfully handled several cases regarding victims of the blasphemy law.
In July 2015, our legal team achieved the acquittal and release of Arif Yousaf, who had been accused of blasphemy. Arif Yousaf had been arrested in 2013 on blasphemy charges, and after two years of our team’s tireless efforts, he was finally set free.
In February 2018, following the relentless efforts of our team, another Christian named Usman Masih, who had been accused of blasphemy, was released from jail. He had been arrested in July 2016 on charges of blasphemy, and our team worked tirelessly for a period of one year and eight months to secure his release. Eventually, we succeeded in obtaining justice for him and ensuring his freedom.
We had provided legal defense for several Christian victims who were wrongly accused under the blasphemy law in various courts across Pakistan.
One particularly notable case involves a Pakistani Christian couple, Shafqat Emmanuel, and his wife, Shagufta Kausar, who were sentenced to death by the court. We have filed an appeal against this verdict in the Lahore High Court. From 2013 to 2019, our legal team defended the couple and cared for their children.
From 2014 to 2023, we have rescued and resettled thousands of modern-day Salves from brick kilns in Pakistan. We not only rescued them but also provided them with better jobs and living conditions to help them restart their lives.
Other Successful Stories :
In the aftermath of the devastating attack on All Saints Church in Peshawar, we assisted dozens of victims by transporting the injured to the best local hospitals. Furthermore, we successfully arranged for one of the church blast victims to travel to Australia for advanced medical treatment.
Since January 2014, we have been working tirelessly to support Pakistani asylum seekers in Thailand. These stranded asylum seekers, who received little assistance from the UNHCR and Thai authorities, were provided with daily necessities such as food, clothing, and essential supplies. Between July 2014 and June 2018, we successfully aided thousands of Christians who were seeking asylum in Thailand.
Later in 2015, when details emerged regarding the inhumane treatment of detainees at the Immigration Detention Center (IDC) in Bangkok, we extended assistance to Christian and Ahmadi detainees for seven months.
In March 2015, hundreds of asylum seekers were arrested by the Thai police, and we immediately intervened. We covered the fines for several detainees, enabling them to avoid imprisonment. In May 2015, we paid an amount of 50,000 Thai Baht (approximately $1600) to bail out more than thousands of prisoners.
From 2018 to 2023, We rescued more than 500 Christian families from the Brick kilns in Pakistan.
From 2018 to 2023, more than 78 girls, the majority of whom were underage, were rescued from abductors. These girls were abducted, raped, and forcibly converted to Islam.
From 2018 to 2023, we rescued many converted Christians in Pakistan who were facing persecution.
As part of our aid and assistance efforts in 2023, we assisted hundreds of Christians who had their homes looted and burned by extremists in Jaranwala, Punjab, Pakistan.
