Since 2012, Christian communities throughout Nigeria’s Benue State have suffered at the hands of Fulani militants. Villagers who manage to survive are often left with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Among the most vulnerable victims of this violence are children whose parents were killed in the attacks.
As a result, for several years, ICC has joined hands with a local orphanage to care for children who have been affected by this violence. With the onset of COVID-19 last year, the pandemic depleted the orphanage of many of its supplies. Relying solely on God’s provision and the generosity of others, the orphanage called out for help.
We stepped in to provide the home with essentials for the children, including clothing, bedding, and personal hygiene products. We also supplied basic food supplies, such as rice, beans, yams, and more. During these uncertain times, these items will relieve some of the immediate financial strain on the orphanage so that the staff does not have to worry how they will provide for the children’s next meal.
The executive director of the orphanage expressed, "We have this great palliative support all the way from International Christian Concern, from the United States of America, our biggest supporter, our biggest partner, our biggest everything. They’ve just been there all the way for us."

Hu Shigen is a well-known underground church leader in China. He was sentenced to over seven years in prison for "subverting state power." During his trial, a photo of his baptism was used as evidence against him.
In an effort to shine a light into the prisoner’s cell, ICC started a letter-writing campaign for believers and churches to write letters to imprisoned Christians. These letters encourage Christian prisoners and also lead to better treatment for those behind bars.
