Rescue of the children from North-East Nigeria

The situation of things in the Nigerian North-Eastern states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe right now is more critical than anyone can imagine. The Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram has sacked several towns and villages, killing people and burning down their homes. As a result of this, thousands of children, most of whose parents have been murdered by the rampaging Boko Haram group, have fled from their towns and villages. They are wandering on mountain tops, on the foot of the hills, while others have crossed over to one of our neighbouring country, Cameroon.

Two thousand of these children are seeking for a shelter with us in ICCFMissions, Home for the Needy (www.homefortheneedy.com), where they can start life all over again.

Meanwhile, we have been able to accommodate 3000 of these children, and equally enrolled them in our school.
