Help End Bonded Labor in Pakistan

Project Leader:

Very Reverend Moon OP Fr. Iftikhar

Fr. Moon is raising money to develop a program at St. Dominic’s parish in Bahawalpur, Pakistan, to end the exploitation of the community he serves. Bonded labor is a form of modern slavery. Millions of the poorest people in Pakistan are working for little or no money to pay back predatory loans to their employers. Members of St. Dominic’s parish are often tricked into taking small loans for paying medical bills or sending their children to school in exchange for working for a few weeks in the brick kilns. The loans are a trap door that increase exponentially and can never be paid off. The debts are passed on to children. Fr. Moon believes skills like subsistence farming, sewing and fixing bicycles will provide alternative earning options to taking these loans. The parish council has begun raising money to provide small business grants and training for 20 laborers. Give $25 to help end bonded labor in Bahawalpur.
