ICC Supports Christian Teen Kicked Out of Home
08/08/2022 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – In 2017, at the age of 13, Safina came to know the Lord after a miraculous healing. Disapproving of their daughter’s newfound faith, Safina’s Muslim parents kicked her out of the family home. In the following years, she bounced around the homes of extended family members who also met her with threats and violence.
Eventually, Safina connected with a social worker and her husband who is a pastor, who were able to take care of her. Following the pandemic lock downs, this family was struggling financially because they relied on the support of their church which was no longer able to meet. Still, they wanted to support Safina during her time of need.
ICC came alongside them to provide Safina with two years of school fees and supplies so that she can continue her education. As it is a boarding school, we also provided her with a mattress, bedding, household essentials, personal hygiene items, and more to alleviate the cost of her schooling.
