  • Background

    Location

    With the advent of winter in November, the water in dams starts to freeze leading to a dramatic drop in hydel power production and hence affecting electricity supply. In Lahore many poor Christians will not be able to buy warm clothes, blankets etc. Women & children will suffer more. To help these less fortune, we are running a community service project to distribute food and Winter Package to the Christian Community in Lahore.
