WHO IS LEAH SHARIBU?
Leah, a bright 14-year-old girl, was
living with her family in Dapchi, Nigeria...
until the morning of February 19th, 2018.
Leah was at school when her village was attacked by jihadist militant terrorists.
She was abducted by the terrorists and brought into captivity along with 109 other classmates. They were forced to cram into vehicles and unfortunately 5 of the girls were killed by suffocation and trampling.
One month later, the girls were returned to their village...
all except one.
Leah was not released, because she refused to renounce her Christian faith and embrace Islam. Because of her refusal, she was brought back into captivity. Leah knew that she would be denied her freedom, but still she bravely spoke up for her beliefs. She said "No!" even in the face of danger, captivity, and oppression.
She is still in captivity today.
We cannot forget about her.
advocacy and pressure for Leah's release -and other girls in similar situations.
for Leah and other similar girls, for their release.
