(International Christian Concern) – In a Muslim populated village in eastern Uganda, Rehema lives with her grandmother after losing her recently converted father to persecution. Rehema’s mother is nowhere to be found.
International Christian Concern (ICC) arrived in the late evening while Rehema was at the nearby shopping center, buying some items for her grandmother, Salima.
“Rehema has been sent by my mother to go and get some sugar before darkness arrives. She will be back very soon,” Aisha, Rehema’s aunt, told ICC. “She has not been fine for months after her dad died and her mother left without a trace.”
Aisha confided that Rehema’s father, Juma Hassan “died from the brutal wounds caused by the family when he left Islam and started going to a church just across the road.”
