A STPC Webinar:
Lifting Up Leah!
Nigeria and the world have been inspired by her heroic show of faith over fear.

Leah Sharibu is a courageous Christian teenager stolen from her family by radical Islamic extremists who have said they intend to keep her as a ‘slave for life.’  Taken with over 100 other female students in February, 2018, Leah alone was kept when the others were released. She was kept, said her captors, for refusing to renounce her faith in Jesus. She was just 14.

Her classmates said when the gun-toting terrorists demanded to know “who here is Christian?” Leah’s arm would shoot up even as her classmates tried to pull it down.

Nigeria and the world have been inspired by her heroic show of faith over fear.

Nonetheless, as her 19th birthday approaches on May 14, Leah—like so many thousands of other Nigerian women and girls—languishes in captivity. She’s been forcibly married to an ISWAP commander and has two young children born in captivity. Those who could rescue her, have not. Promises were made to the family by various members of the Nigerian government. None have been kept. They seem to have forgotten her.

But, her family has not forgotten Leah and neither have we.

Christian women and girls are among the most vulnerable and targeted population for Nigerian terrorists be they Boko Haram, ISWAP, Fulani Herdsmen, or so-called ‘Bandits.’

What more can be done to elevate the story of Leah and draw international attention to the religious-based violence and kidnappings plaguing Nigeria?

Join us for an important conversation with Leah’s family, Dr. Gloria Puldu, president of the Leah Foundation, and others who have advocated for her return.
