Entire families, including very young children, work in brick kilns striving to pay off debts. Debts which are beyond their means to repay, even after decades of continuous work. A family is paid £1 for every 1,000 bricks made.
The brick kiln workers live in substandard conditions with no running water, sanitation, education facilities, or health care. The workers are often traded or sold between owners. Incidents of abuse are frequent. Some families have been enslaved for generations. Project Exodus is a project of Reach Pakistan started by Zahid and Mary Kenny.
Kenny and his wife Mary have been working in these brick kilns, with the owner’s permission, setting up schools to teach the children. They both have a heart, and a dream, to see these families set free. Not just set free but also rehabilitated with paid work. Mary, Kenny and their family are now residing in the UK but continuing to promote this work.
The total cost of freeing a family is:
- £3,200 will buy a family out of slavery from the brick kiln owners
- £500 to rehabilitate them
- £500 to set them up in a business to earn an income
Please pray for and/or financially liberate these people.
