2 Years Later, Kidnapped Girl Found
Two years ago, the terrorist organization Boko Haram kidnapped 276 girls from a school in Chibok, Nigeria. The terrorists justified their actions by claiming that young women should not be in school and they should be married. Many of these innocent girls were then sold off to militants and jihadists as slaves with a price of $12.50.
Since then, less than 60 of these young women have been able to escape. Just this week, Amina Ali Nkeki, one of the kidnapped girls, was rescued from a terrorist stronghold. She is the first to be rescued.
Boko Haram has pledged its allegiance to the terrorist organization ISIS.
Gleaning’s Response To The Violence
We have been working with our trusted partners in Nigeria for several years. They work throughout the entire country, as well as within the refugee camps established to help families who fled Boko Haram. The number of refugees now stand at three million.
Our partners provide medical assistance, check ups and nutritional aid to families in the camps. To help support their mission by providing supplies, they need to reach these families. This week, we have been able to provide $150,000 worth of vitamins, nutritional supplements and OTC medications. This will help our partners provide care to thousands of families who have been forced from their homes by terrorism.
We are committed to helping those suffering at the hands of terrorists. Your partnership provides the supplies critical to help these vulnerable families.
