Pakistan: Smog Problems
Thick smog covered parts of Pakistan this month, causing car accidents, airplane delays, and illnesses. The smog also hindered The Voice of the Martyrs’ work in Pakistan, where workers deliver Action Packs and other aid and encouragement to persecuted Christians.
Some of the smoke that causes the smog comes from brick kilns. Many Christians in Pakistan work at the kilns because better jobs go to Muslim workers. Watch a video of a Christian girl working at a brick kiln.
Christians have been praying for Pakistanis who suffer from the effects of the smog. This week, rain improved the situation somewhat, but Pakistanis know the smog will return.
You can visit VOM’s I Commit to Pray website and add your prayer to the prayers of other Christians who are praying for Pakistan.
