SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE GIVING OPTIONS

Rose lost her husband to persecution then her livelihood to Covid-19

Rose lost her husband in April when the Fulani attacked her village. She lost her livelihood when the government locked down her region.

But she didn’t lose her faith. Or her determination to provide for her family.

Violent attacks on Christians have continued during the Covid-19 crisis in countries all over Africa. And nowhere more than in northern Nigeria. And now, lockdown has forced thousands of families to the edge of survival.

 “Sometimes we go to sleep without any food,” Rose tells us. “I only put my trust in God to see me through.”

Last in line Open Doors has identified more than 15,000 families across Sub-Saharan Africa in urgent need of help. Nigeria has the highest level of need: 9,000 families.

These believers have no other source of help. They are last in line.

“We were happy when the government announced food aid for the poor,” Rose tells us. “But we were left out. We received none of that food.”

Every Php 1,500 could provide a month’s relief supplies of food and soap for a family — as well as other  emergency needs such as rent or medicine.

Keeping the church alive “Open Doors is not a relief agency, but for now we have had to suspend our longterm work,” says our Field Director for Africa. “Our job is simply to keep the church alive.”

Rose takes courage from the knowledge that the worldwide family of God are praying for her. She says, “Whenever I read Psalm 119:11, I feel so encouraged amid the situation I find myself in.”

If you’ve already given to Open Doors’ Covid-19 crisis fund, thank you. Your support has had an incredible impact in keeping thousands of families alive during the crisis.

Please pray for the Lord’s provision in their lives. If you are able, please continue to help us bring urgent relief and hope  to Rose and many others like her across Africa.
