05/20/2024 Africa (International Christian Concern) – Sarah endured rejection from her family due to her disability and faced further hardship when she was taken advantage of and became pregnant. After her father died when she was very young, her mother rejected her due to her disability. When she became pregnant, she had nowhere to turn and married the father of her child, who was a Muslim and had other wives.

Despite her struggles, she embraced Christianity in 2022. However, her newfound faith led to her husband’s anger, resulting in her expulsion from their home.

Left with nowhere to go, Sarah sought refuge with her grandmother in a Muslim community, where she continued to face threats unless she reverted to Islam. Unable to do physical labor, she dreamed of owning a shop to sustain herself. We relocated her to a safer community and set her up with a small business to generate income.

Grateful for the support, Sarah exclaimed, “I thank God for this shop! I can’t believe it! My situation has changed so much that ICC saved me from crying day and night.” With the shop, she’s able to support her family and pay for her son’s education.
