Rebuild the Nigerian Church
For over six years Nigeria has been fighting a vicious radical Islamic insurgency, Boko Haram. Boko Haram is known for kidnapping women and young girls, forcing their conversion, and forcibly ‘marrying’ them to terrorists. The insurgency group has bombed and burned many churches across the country.
- Nigeria is home to over one hundred million Christians, over half of the nation’s population
- 1000 Churches have been destroyed in the past four years
- Since 2013, Boko Haram has killed nearly 7,000 people, of which Christians are often the main target
Nigerians scatter around the ruins of a church targeted by a suicide bomber. Two people were killed in this attack.
