The YWAM field officers visiting victims of bomb blast and also bringing supplies and devotional calendars
The situation in Peshawar among the bomb blast victims remains a concern for us.
Some people have life long injuries and families have lost breadwinners, their situation that has no quick or easy solutions.
One group of five young people were orphaned in a flash and now live with a cousin who is unable to provide for all of them. They are all of school age and fsace a bleak future without continuous support.
Some recently widowed ladies are hoping to learn new skills such as sewing, so they can earn money through tailoring, but all this takes time and needs a resident team to arrange support and source resources for the complex needs of these individual families. We are therefore seeking donations to fund a small team of volunteers in the city for the next couple of years. This would enable us to monoitor the condition of the families we have met and to make their needs known to those who would wish to offer more long term support to those who have suffered so terribly in this cruel, unprovoked attack upon innocent Christians.
During our last visit we also found the Muslim families who had been bereaved because of the suicide attack. The security guards and caterer were all killed instantly, leaving widows and children to fend for themselves in a difficult social environment where very few ladies can earn incomes on their own.
"Thank you for coming and helping us at this time" they said. "We have watched Christians help each other and receive help from one another, but you are the first to visit us and do something to supply our needs. We are in tears because we thought no one cared about our suffering, only about their own, we will not forget your visit".
