Freed from the Brick Kiln

[199] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Hamza.

A laborer in Pakistan who has experienced ongoing persecution from the owner of the brick kiln where he was indentured is now free. Hamza was born into a family indebted to a brick kiln owner, a common situation, and the debt from his parents was passed down to him. After Hamza brought a Muslim coworker with him to church, his employer began repeatedly beating and harassing Hamza, even after Hamza was sold to another employer. On Nov. 30, 2020, Hamza paid his debt to the kiln owners with help from VOM, and he is now free of that burden. He and his family will now operate a rickshaw taxi and transport business. Thank God that Hamza is free from this abusive situation.
