80 years ago, a man borrowed $.01

80 years ago, a man borrowed $.01 from a rich man.  The terms of the loan was that the man and his family would become slaves until the debt was paid off.  Now, 80 years later, the great-great grandchildren of this man are still working to pay off the debt.

The man had 4 sons.  Irshad and his wife have 5 children, Samuel and his wife have 4 children and his brother Aslam lives with them, and Akhtar and his wife have 4 children and Akhtar’s mother lives with them.  This extended family has 21 members who live in slavery and make bricks everyday.  From the little children to the elderly – all must work and make bricks to pay off the debt of their father/grandfather/great-grandfather/ great-great grandfather.

We think it’s time to pay off their debt and set them free.

The total debt owed and the cost to house, feed the families, and establish small businesses for the families is $785.00.  I live in the USA, where the minimum wage is $7.25.  The total would be less than 3 full weeks of employment at minimum wage in this country.

If you would like to help us free this family, and others, you can click on the link below.

 All money donated goes towards the freedom of people in slavery and helping them move to a normal life.  We don’t have an organization that takes any money out of donations.

Thank you for your support!

Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed.” (Proverbs 28:27, NLT)
