Nairobi, Kenya

Many of the international 40 Days for Life campaigns face special challenges.

That is the case for the volunteers who will be praying outside the Marie Stopes headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.

Marie Stopes is a London-based chain that is trying to extend its outreach in Africa and Latin America. Many activists speculate the organization is encouraging abortions in places where they are illegal.

In fact, one group — CitizenGO – Africa – has even delivered a petition to Kenya’s ministry of health, demanding that Marie Stopes’ license be revoked and calling on the health secretary to close the Marie Stopes offices.

Marie Stopes advertises “pregnancy solutions” on the streets of Nairobi, encouraging women to call them for appointments.

Please pray for Nairobi — and all 40 Days for Life campaigns!
