    Three young Christian girls were kidnapped and abused by Boko Haram militants for three weeks in the Gwoza community of Borno state, Nigeria this year. The group killed more than 60 people and caused 14,000 to flee their homes in Gwoza between May and September of 2013. The militants also occupied, burned or destroyed many churches, schools and homes of Christians. The violence has forced about 6,500 Christians to seek shelter in area refugee camps, and another 5,000 have fled to the bordering country of Cameroon. VOM staff took the three girls who were abducted to the VOM-supported Stephen Center, a boarding school for victims of persecution in Nigeria, where they are recovering.
