Advocacy Action: Memorial Day Chibok Girls

The kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls from Chibok (Nigeria) will date back five years on Sunday, April 14, 2019. But even five years after the kidnapping, more than 100 girls are still in the hands of the militia and we don’t know if they are still alive or how they are at the moment.

Mission 21 calls in this context for solidarity with the victims of the terror of Boko Haram. On the sad fifth anniversary of the kidnapping, we recall the importance of assisting the terror afflicted population, especially girls and women. At the same time, we want to stand up for those throughout the world who are affected by fundamentalist violence and who pray and keep silent together, but who also act.

Show your solidarity and support our advocacy campaign. Become active against fundamentalist motivated violence and show solidarity with the victims of the terrorist militia Boko Haram in Nigeria. Show your solidarity on social media with the following hashtags:

Period of the commemoration: 14 April and later
