For original press release see website on www.compassionforpakistan.org/press
Compassion for Pakistan is a relatively newly formed N. Ireland and U.K. registered charitable organisation that was established, not just to highlight the injustices and endemic persecution of minority groups in Pakistan and other nations but desires to be a grass roots provider of proven solutions.
Basically put ‘Compassion for Pakistan's aim is to “Reduce Poverty, Promote Peace in Communities and Eliminate Persecution of all types’.
Awake and Aware Continued... is a series of events designed to bring the truth to people regarding persecution in an informative, educational and balanced way demonstrating that in our world’s global village unfortunately minority groups generally face persecution no matter if they are from the Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Bahai’s or another ethnic religious group. Compassion for Pakistan also desires to present the benefits of peace building on the basis of the 'Good Friday Agreement' as a building block for peace in Pakistan and the region and the charity desires to promote peace and social development projects in Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom at a later date.
As this particular event is being held in a registered church the Gospel will be shared in a loving and appropriate manner and prayer will be offered for divine healing and the prayer of faith to meet personal needs. In addition praise and worship will be presented by a guest band connected to the church with volunteer vocalists from the charity.
This events key speaker is the charity's founder and public relations Ambassador 'Mr Ken Wright'.
The charity's founder is registered partially sighted and disabled. As a person having a visual disability he attended Jordanstown Schools for the blind and deaf in Newtownabbey Belfast and later met his wife 'Christine' (who is herself registered blind) at the Royal National College for the blind in Hereford England and believes that disabled people should be promoted in church service and the workplace.
Ken comes from a strong telecommunications background and was the first in Europe to pioneer the world's first downloadable video device the Zvue Mp4 Media Player to the European retail market. Later Ken was appointed 'Assistant Director of European Operations' for Handheld Entertainment a public listed company on the US Nasdaq.
Ken has approached many international ambassadors and foreign governments both face to face and in writing regarding persecution issues especially for those in minority groups. He has attended a number of meetings at the European Parliament and Commission and has also been a past speaker at the United Nations in Geneva Switzerland. Ken has appeared multiple times on satellite TV such as Revelation TV, TBN, Wonderful, Faith TV and others including Muslim religious platforms such as Sky TV99 about persecution issues and has shared the bible on a local, national and international platform using large print.
Compassion for Pakistan believes that with the appropriate strategic partnerships, culturally adapted education, poverty reduction and focused community investment into peace and capacity building that on the basis of common humanity that the desired outcome of peace in Pakistan, Northern Ireland and other nations can become a reality.
Compassion for Pakistan also is concerned for Pakistan asylum seekers who have felt they have had no choice but to leave their homeland of Pakistan to flee to other nations such as Thailand, Malaysia and Sri-Lanka and desires to help asylum seekers in this situation with a suitable arrangement to earn money to feed and educate their families and seeks the help of the public to do so with much needed prayer and funds.
About ‘Compassion for Pakistan’:
Although ‘Compassion for Pakistan’ has only recently obtained clearance on its official NI & UK charity status its small team with very limited resources in a voluntary capacity has done its best to highlight the persecution issues in Pakistan and other nations and to be educated on the subject from well established advisors on the ground especially in Pakistan and attending European research forums from established intelligentsia and research specialists into relevant issues such as the ‘South Asia Democratic Forum’
Their founder ‘Ken Wright’ has also highlighted the issue of poverty and persecution in Pakistan and other nations of Christians and other minority groups on various satellite TV stations such as Revelation TV, Muslim Channel TV99 and others over the years underlining the importance of a humanity based community response with a long term social and economic strategy for the good of all community participants.
