“We have heard the cry of the Kachin people and we must be willing to help them,” said a VOM worker, after he met and interviewed Kachin believers in Myanmar “I saw pain and despair in their eyes, but in their hearts was the eternal flame of hope in Christ!”
Villages have been looted and burned. Pastors and leaders have been forced to be load bearers for the army and not seen or heard from again; others have been beaten, tortured or killed. Women have been raped. Children have been abducted and sold into the sex industry. Tens of thousands of Christians have been displaced. This is a broad overview of the terrible persecution facing Kachin Christians.
Voice of the Martyrs is launching a crisis appeal to provide urgently needed Life Packs to Kachin brothers and sisters impacted by civil conflict in Myanmar.
Kachin Life Packs cost $40 each and will contain practical aid such as food, clean water, cooking equipment, tarpaulins and medicine, as well as Kachin Bibles and Christian literature.
Thousands of Kachin Christians are in desperate need of your encouragement, prayer and practical love. Each Kachin Life Pack will provide aid for an entire family.
