Even without knowledge of Tajik or the language of the Pamir people, we would have understood this word: Tashakor - Thank you! Every conversation we have in the village of Shujand, every gesture and every look expresses what the people feel - gratitude.

Pamir villages after landslide

Shujand had suffered most severely from the landslide that destroyed or severely damaged several houses here on July 13. The main road has now been cleared, the power supply restored, and the mighty Pamir peaks rise quietly above the village.
But what is left of the people's houses is stuck in a dried mass of rubble and mud.

Your help brings hope

When the team of brothers from the church in Dushanbe brought the first relief supplies to Shujand in July, the people were overwhelmed by the willingness of the Christians to help - and by your willingness to sacrifice, dear friends, which has made this first relief action possible. It is this testimony of loving care which causes so much gratitude in the hearts of the Pamir people.They feel that with the relief goods they receive above all the message that they are not forgotten, and that God cares for them through His children.

"We are very grateful to our brothers - the Christians - for coming to our village to bring help," a man from Shujand tells us, and of course, visibly moved, he too says, "Tashakor," puts his hand on his heart and gives us a smile.

Thank you, dear friends, for your help to the people of Shujand!
In this first action we were able to distribute building materials for 21 houses and provide food for 30 families.
Thank you for bringing hope to these people, so that even in the shadow of the Pamir peaks, the light of the Gospel shines ever stronger!
