Saratu and her four children lived under a tree in a refugee camp for nearly a year after Islamic extremists attacked their Christian village in northern Nigeria. Her husband was killed in the attack, and she was left with no means of supporting herself and her children. When it was finally safe to return to their village, Saratu found that the terrorists had burned everything in their home and destroyed their crops.
The Voice of the Martyrs provided Saratu’s family with clothing, furniture and household items like mattresses and bedding. In addition, VOM helped her start farming again, and today she supports her family by selling the farm’s produce. “If it weren’t for God,” she said, “I would not have survived.”
