The Christians Stranded in Thailand

(Voice of the Persecuted recommended)

Thousands of Christian refugees who have fled religious violence in Pakistan are stranded in Thailand. They travel there because of cheap tourist visas but quickly get caught in a tangle of asylum bureaucracy which can mean waiting years to move on to a third country. It happens because Thailand does not offer asylum to refugees, but passes them on to the UNCHR for processing; but the UN is overwhelmed, leaving many to suffer poverty and deprivation while they await news of their cases.

In some cases men, women and children are rounded up by the Thai authorities and incarcerated in grim detention centres or even imprisoned.

For Assignment, the BBC’s Chris Rogers reports from the backstreets of Bangkok where many of the refugees are in hiding and goes undercover to expose the treatment of these people in Thailand’s detention system.


Voice of the Persecuted is one of the missions helping these Christians in Thailand. Their situation is dire. Please help us to continue offering aid to our brothers and sisters in great suffering.

This unstable situation that will become a regrettable tragedy if continued to be overlooked. If others cannot manage to help them, the Body of Christ (the Church) must step up and care for the least of our brethren in Thailand. Surely this example was set by the first century church, or have we forgotten?

Many new cases are brought to Voice of the Persecuted. Our mission has been designed to stay along side these families to help them endure. But we are a small mission trying to help in a big crisis. It is heartbreaking to not have the means to care for all those needing aid. Each month, we rely on and ask the Lord to provide as we continue covering those we already care for. To give us the ability to add the many other families on our waiting list. We ask for His heart for these dear ones who suffer for their faith in Christ Jesus. We pray for more to partner with us in the mission. As they have had to beg—today, we beg for them. Brothers and sisters, we ask for your help to distribute aid to the persecuted suffering in Thailand.

For more information to aid a persecuted family in Thailand, contact us at info@voiceofthepersecuted.org

Let us not forget them, nor think as the world, ‘someone else will step up to help’. Let us not regret the loss of even one of these ‘family members’ when there is surely a way to share and provide. But any help you can give is appreciated more than you could ever know.

L Kanalos, VOP Founder

Together with your generous help, we can reach the goal to alleviate horrific suffering. In darkness and desperation, let us serve in love, with open arms and giving hands to provide light and hope.


Everyday, we thank God that He is working through you to care for His children and further His Kingdom! As you greatly bless others, may God continue to bless you. Thank you so much for your support.

We couldn’t do it without you!

    British Pakistani Christian Association is heavily involved.

    • Yes they are. Our founder has known Mr. Chowdry for years. We stay in close contact with the BPCA and have come up with a plan to work separately, yet side by side to care for them. We pray other missions will also collaborate with us and work together in their care. One of the victims in the interview is being cared for by Voice of the Persecuted. Let us know if you are interested in helping to cover the monthly expenses of a Pakistani asylum seeker family in Thailand. We share monthly updates with those sponsoring a family. We also share messages of encouragement from sponsors with ‘their families’. God bless you, brother!
