Another Chibok Schoolgirl Rescued

Another Chibok Schoolgirl Rescued The news about the rescue of one more of our #ChibokGirls gives cause for optimism on the release/rescue of the 112 #ChibokGirls still in captivity.  The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) is to be commended for its promise to #BringBackOurGirls. We urge that it redoubles the efforts to rescue them and all other abducted Nigerians from captivity. As the rescue or release happens, we urge the FGN to develop a comprehensive framework for cutting edge psychosocial care and long term support that create conditions for recovery as well as enhanced capacity to resume a modicum of normalcy in their lives.

Joyful for release of ChibokGirls82. Praying for 113's release/rescue

Today, I am joyful and am celebrating with our #ChibokGirls82 who are now in Abuja, and their parents and families. 


While I am grateful that the Federal Government of Nigeria has negotiated for these young women's release, I am also praying that they and all those rescued and released before will get the culturally appropriate, long term psychosocial care that they need to cope with the trauma they've been through.  

It's imperative that they are given this support so they can resume some modicum of normalcy in their lives.



It's also heartbreaking that 113 young women and so many other Nigerians and West Africans are still held captive by these homicidal psychopaths. Praying too that they are rescued or released sooner rather than later, and that the people of the affected areas experience peace after this long-drawn out ordeal.  Let's keep praying and agitating that the Federal Government of Nigeria #BringBackOurGirls!
