Christian brick-kiln workers in Pakistan

Breaking the chains of bonded labour for Christian brick-kiln workers in Pakistan

Thousands of Pakistani Christian brick-kiln workers borrow money from their employer for essential needs at a time of family crisis. The debts keep each family bonded to their brick-kiln, with money deducted from their wages to pay the interest on the loan. It is impossible, out of their poverty, to pay off the debts, and these debts can be passed down from generation to generation. Despised, despairing and trapped, the bonded brickkiln workers feel like slaves. But Barnabas Aid supporters have donated to set free hundreds of families by paying off their debts.
