Centre for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS) is a Christian charity dedicated to helping persecuted Christians in Pakistan.

Since 1998, CLAAS workers, lawyers, volunteers and supporters have championed the cause of the persecuted Christians and other minorities in Pakistan and have helped thousands of poor and traumatised victims of religious persecution.

CLAAS’ ministry is based on Proverbs: 31:8-9

"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."

(The Bible, Proverbs 31:8-9)
