Caring Partners Provide Aid After A Tragic Accident
Life dealt Judith an unfair blow. The young teenager was not involved in a nearby protest, but she was tragically struck by a stray bullet.
At only 16 years old, she received a life-threatening injury. She was rushed to a hospital near her home in Nigeria. The bullet had entered Judith’s abdomen. The doctors gave her a temporary colostomy that could be closed later, once the injury had healed. But it was much too expensive for her family to afford.
“No matter how hard I tried, it seemed I would not be able to come close to getting the money for my daughter’s surgery,” Judith’s mother, Talatu, explained.
But soon, the family learned about the Life-Changing Surgeries program from CBN’s Operation Blessing—and this precious girl received the much-needed procedure. The love and generosity of caring partners around the globe helped make this possible. Her mother was overwhelmed with joy. “Thank you, Operation Blessing!” Talatu said. “God used you to help my daughter.”
