Rescue of Young Girls Kidnapped

On September 24, 2020, in the middle of the night, 2 homes in one of the Northern states of Nigeria were attacked and 8 children were kidnapped, all girls. 5 of the children are sisters (ages 24, 20, 16, 14 & 13) and are the nieces of dear friends.
     The girls are being held for a ransom that is impossible for the families to pay. Their pictures and names cannot be shared for their safety. There is very little hope of legal or governmental help to rescue them.

      The parents have been able to talk to them several times a day to prove they are still alive and the ransom is being demanded urgently. The children are scared and in pain from not being treated well.

     The kidnappers are a very well organized and evil group. The girls are in a very horrible situation, not to mention what their families are going through. The Nigerians do not feel safe in their own homes.

     Please help us raise $2,500 for the release of all 8 children so they can be returned alive back to their families. The money is needed right away. We hope to reach the $2,500 goal by Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

     If you are not able to help monetarily, please pray that these girls are returned to their families alive and for their present and future safety.

THANK YOU!! Any questions, please feel free to contact me.
