Niamey, Niger

(NEE-ah-may) – In some rural areas of Niger, there are terrorist groups that impose a kind of tax on males 15 years old and older. If these males refuse to pay or can’t pay, then they are conscripted to service in the terrorist group. This has led many in the rural areas to move to the capital city of Niamey. Please pray for the people of Niger who live in these rural areas. Pray for families in Niamey who want to help but are already barely making ends meet.
