Sweeping into the com­munities, they violently attack Christian vil­lagers and destroy farmland, leaving the sur­vivors with few options to recover financially. A single attack can leave an entire community devastated for years to come.

Last May, Fulani militants ambushed a predominantly Christian village in Nigeria’s Kwall District. The attackers fired off gun­shots indiscriminately and swung at villag­ers with machetes. When the dust settled, two men were killed and another 10 were injured. One of those killed in the attack was Jummai’s husband, Ezekiel.

As the primary breadwinner for his fam­ily, Ezekiel provided his family with hous­ing, food, clothing, and more. Following his death, Jummai and her children were left to fend for themselves.

In order support this grieving family, ICC stepped in to provide food assistance and five goats, which Jummai can raise to pro­vide extra income. This gift will support the family for three months as they adjust to life without Ezekiel. This relief will also alleviate some of the burden on the community in their efforts to provide for the family.

Jummai expressed, “I’m so grateful to God for the support from ICC. God will bless you as you continue with the good works. This chance of living that you’ve given me and my children will forever be remembered. I promise to work hard and get back on my feet.”

One of her children shared, “Thank you so much ICC! God will bless you, strengthen you, and see you through in all that you’re doing in Jesus name. Amen.” Please con­tinue praying for Jummai and her children in the midst of their grief.
