About Nigeria

Burned out houses near Jos – March 2014

Nigeria is a huge country and the most populous in Africa – a nation of over 140 million people, predominantly Muslim in the north and Christian in the south.

In recent times, the church in north and central Nigeria has fallen victim to discrimination, intimidation and dreadful violence, fuelled by Islamic terrorism and expansionism.

Hundreds of homes and churches have been torched, and Christian men, women and children terrorised, macheted or shot.  Government miliitary forces provide little or no protection and are increasingly complicit in these attacks.  In the North-West, victims are not eligible for relief funding if they are Christians.

Our aim is to help victims of aggression and those suffering discrimination simply for being Christians.
