One hundred and sixty Christians were recently forced to flee their village after it was attacked by Muslim extremists, according to a VOM worker.
The villages of Malipayon, Saban of Barnagay, Maybula and New Bunawan were attacked at about 9am on Saturday 1 June. An estimated 300 armed men fired more than five mortars into the village. The Christians who fled the attack are now in need of food, mosquito nets, bed sheets, sleeping mats and medicine. Many have become ill because they were not able to take their bedding or medicines when they left their homes.
The Christians are currently unable to return to the village because they fear that the Muslims will kill them and burn their homes. VOM has provided the Christians with basic necessities such as food, mosquito nets, blankets and medicine.
