A Christian woman who suffered serious injuries resulting from a bomb attack at her church has tragically passed away. Farah Javed died as a result of an infection on 11 January, almost 16 months after one of the deadliest attacks against Christians in the country’s history.
The All Saints Church building in Peshawar was struck by two suicide bombers on 22 September 2013, leaving more than 80 dead and another 150 wounded.
Farah was permanently paralysed as a result of the assault and sadly battled many medical complications in the months leading up to her death. Farah’s mother and siblings are understandably having a difficult time, especially as the young woman’s father also recently passed away in March of 2014.
