Riyom, Nigeria

The community outreach portion of the 40 Days for Life campaign in Riyom continues to touch many people in the region.

Jummai, the local coordinator, also had some very good news to share about a young woman who “chose life for her baby despite the challenge she is facing.”

This young woman, who has a two-year-old daughter, had become pregnant as the result of an assault by a man who has since fled the area. “She lives on money she makes working on people’s farms,” Jummai said.

The volunteers have helped this woman find good medical care.

During this campaign, Jummai has been able to share the pro-life message and the story of 40 Days for Life at various churches and conferences in the area, as well as at a town hall meeting.
