Switzerland: Asia Bibi

As concerns have been raised about the onset of dementia for Asia Bibi, a group of Christians took part in a charity run in mid-September to raise awareness of the plight of Asia and millions of other Christians faced with persecution in Pakistan.

The gathering was organised by a new Pakistani Christian advocacy group named ‘Masih Overseas’, the first of their kind in Switzerland. They were seeking help with their first public campaign to make the nation of Switzerland aware of the plight of Pakistani Christians. Initially a plan was organised for a protest, but after a rethink it was agreed that the group would organise a charity run within Greifenseelauf 2018, a 21km race close to the International Day of Peace declared by the UN.
