PAKISTAN – Pakistan Forces Out World Vision and 17 Other Charities
International Christian Concern | Dec. 22, 2018
After 13 years of operations, World Vision has been kicked out of Pakistan along with 17 other charities. With this move, Pakistan has joined with neighbors like China, India, and Russia in restricting foreign involvement in their country under the guise of greater security.
Last year, 27 organizations were given expulsion orders by the Pakistani government. Eighteen of those organizations, including World Vision, continued operations while they appealed the decision.
According to the Pakistan Humanitarian Forum the expulsion of these charities represents a $130 million loss in aid to more than 11 million people.
