Delivering resources to thousands of Christians displaced by Boko Haram
WHERE THINGS STAND
It is estimated that between 30-50,000 Christians have been displaced by the terrorist group Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. Many organization including the Red Cross are responding to urgent humanitarian needs. Bellwether International is responding to needs not being addressed by the larger non-profit community including educational and long-term needs.
Bellwether International has partnered with several on the ground, local non-profits in Nigeria to assess the needs of displaced persons and is currently working to provide 40,000 books and educational resources for parents, children, young adults, and religious organizations. Book ownership can promote a sense of community amidst homelessness, education amidst hopelessness, and excitement amidst distrustfulness.
