Pakistan Genocide Appeal: 25 sewing machines gifted to victim families to start small businesses - Pakistan

Updated on 12 March 2018

In March 2013, The World Federation launched the ‘Pakistan Genocide Appeal’ to raise awareness about and donations to care for victims and families of targeted killings in Pakistan.

Wounded victims and grief-stricken families of those killed need support. Donations are used to cover a range of costs including medical treatments, ambulance charges, medicine, food, education and microfinance programs.

In January 2014, The World Federation provided 25 sewing machines along with sewing classes to widows, sisters, daughters and mothers of those breadwinners who were killed in targetted killings in District Dhera Ismail Khan in Pakistan.

The goal of this initiative was to assist women in developing the skill of sewing so that they could start their own home-based businesses to generate income to become self-sufficient. 

Since the death of their husbands, brothers, fathers and sons, these families have been struggling financially and it is our hope that this new economic development program will allow them to achieve financial independence.
