VOM-Supported Widow Killed in Roadside Accident

[197] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Hasina's Family.


Hasina Yakubu, whose husband was killed in a 2009 attack by Fulani Muslims, died in a roadside accident in September 2018. Since her husband’s death, Hasina had been supporting her three children as well as a niece, whose father was killed in the same attack that took her husband. In 2011, her oldest son also was killed when Fulani herdsmen attacked a village where he was working. VOM had provided food, school fees and skills training to help Hasina and her family. Tragically, Hasina died a few weeks ago after being hit by a truck that veered off the road. “Today is a really sad day for the team here in Nigeria,” a VOM worker wrote. “Hasina died this morning around 7 a.m.” Pray for Hasina’s surviving children, who have suffered great losses in their lives. Pray that the Lord will supply their needs.
