It’s an ultimatum: Boko Haram has promised to kill a Christian teen held captive for her faith.
A 16-year-old girl is being held captive by Islamic jihadists in Nigeria because she is a Christian. We must take action to save her.
Boko Haram – the Nigerian jihadist militia pledged to ISIS – stormed a village and abducted 110 schoolgirls. Five of those were killed, and 104 were freed.
Yet one brave teen named Leah Sharibu remains a prisoner because she won’t renounce her Christian faith.
Nigerian Christians are being targeted, abused, and murdered by sadistic jihadist groups like Boko Haram. Their government seems unable or unwilling to stop this violence against Christians.
We’ve delivered a critical oral intervention at the U.N. on behalf of Nigeria’s Christians. We’re sending a critical legal advocacy letter to the government of Nigeria demanding it act to free Leah.
Christian children must be protected. Leah Sharibu must be brought home safely. Now she urgently needs YOU before it’s too late.
We’re mobilizing our offices worldwide to fight for Christian teen Leah Sharibu’s freedom. Support our work and have your Tax-Deductible gift DOUBLED today.
