Niger

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, make the people of Niger seek after Your goodness and grace to live a peaceful life and support President Mohamed Bazoum who took office, making it the first democratic transfer of power in the nation’s history. Bless the support by Germany for the North African country to help face the difficulties and challenges and make progress. Let Niger’s new emphasis on educating young girls and women to have better access to health care become a reality through partnering solidarity. Enable the Churches and the Christian Believers to arm them spiritually to face the major challenges of Niger. Empower them to pray and battle against the armed conflict in the region and the human traffickers and Islamist militias. Lord, make the international agencies to extend their support to Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world. Let the Nigerian Christian Believers arise and pray for the lives of their children, who faint from hunger at every street corner (The Bible, Lamentations 2:19).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Médecins Sans Frontières began supporting the national response to COVID-19 in Niamey, the epicentre of the new CORONAVIRUS pandemic in Niger. MSF teams that regularly work in several other parts of the country have also implemented a number of measures as the virus spread to other regions. In a context characterized by stigma and violence, there are many challenges to respond to the pandemic.
