Terrorism Spike In Africa

Dec 15, 2020

According to the 2020 Global Terrorism Index published by the Institute for Economics & Peace:
  1. Although the number of deaths globally resulting from terrorism decreased, sub-Saharan Africa saw an increase in attacks.
  2. Seven of the 10 countries with the largest increase in terror-related deaths were in this region.
  3. The number of attacks increased the most in Burkina Faso — by a chilling 590%.
  4. Other African nations hit hard by radical jihadist groups include Mozambique, Mali and Niger.
Sadly, Christians are often the "preferred targets of terrorists" in other African regions as well — like the Sahel, the Lake Chad basin and the Horn of Africa — noted a Liberty Relief International partner serving in the sub-Saharan area.
As we head toward Christmas and the good it represents to a weary world, will you join LRI to share tangible, compassionate hope with brothers and sisters suffering violent persecution?
In this special season of the year, HOPE IS THE ANSWER.
Your gift right now will provide help like emergency food, water, medical care and safety for people fleeing unrest and bloodshed ... trauma counseling, literacy training and job training for people starting over, perhaps in an unknown country ... assistance in rebuilding churches and homes destroyed by bombings, arson and more ... and spiritual support like Bibles, Bible study materials and discipleship training for new believers.
Thank you for standing with LRI today. Believers in volatile regions in Africa — in India — in the Middle East — in central and southern Asia and beyond need hope and help ... a lifeline of compassionate generosity.
And YOUR prayers and giving are that lifeline.
Thank you for ministering to our hurting family all over the world during this Christmas season!
