Week of Compassion is working with its partners, Church World Service (CWS), and Action by Churches Working Together (ACT) International, to assist scores of people who have been displaced by the recent escalation of fighting in Pakistan. The latest offensive by the Pakistan military against Taliban insurgents in northwest Pakistan has displaced more than 2.5 million people. Week of Compassion (WOC), the relief, refugee and development fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), is receiving gifts to help internally displaced persons in Pakistan.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee their villages by the heavy bombardments and shooting between the two warring sides. To make an online donation, go to secure.groundspring.org/dn/index.php?aid=6566 or send a gift to WOC, P.O. Box 1986, Indianapolis, IN 46206.
