More than 1 million children in northern Nigeria and nearby areas have been displaced because of attacks by the Islamic militant group Boko Haram, the BBC reports. The organization International Christian Concern (ICC) says the children are living in “horrific conditions, facing malnutrition and disease.”
ICC acts as a bridge between believers in free countries and those in persecuted countries. The bridge carries encouragement, prayers and aid in while news, requests, and love flow back over the bridge. The bridge also allows for the voices and concerns of the persecuted to be heard by the Church so that we might move the rest of the world to action on their behalf.
