On 26 February 2021, a group of 21 Christian women was released from the notorious Nakura prison. Many of the released prisoners were part of a large group of Christians arrested in the summer of 2017. Over 200 were arrested, including a group taken during a wedding celebration. The newly released women were the last female prisoners held at the prison on the Red Sea. One woman was 15 years old when she was arrested; she is now 29, and her parents have since divorced. Another was 16 when she was arrested; both of her parents died while she was in prison. Other Christians are providing clothing, food and housing to the released women.
Pray for their restoration to health and life.
Pray for the 26 Christian men who remain at Nakura prison.
