Some of the raped and abused pregnant women have given birth at the Help Chibok Girls camp clinic today,15 new babies.
There are also about 10 pregnant women in camp.

These IDPs, who were mainly from villages and towns in the North-Eastern part of the Country, such as Gwoza, Madagalli, Mubi, Michika, in both Borno and Adamawa States, where the rape and abuse of women has been most severe, gave harrowing narrations of their experiences while fleeing from the insurgents, leaving behind their homes, sources of livelihood, as well as family members.

Their accounts were sources of inspiration, as their will to survive and be re-united with their families were heart-warming and sad at the same time. Some of these victims had gone through thick forests, mountainous terrains, and even crossed borders to neighbouring Countries like Cameroon, all on foot, before travelling down to the Help Chibok girls camp.

The Help Chibok Girls camp now has the need for the rich and other cooperate organizations to come to the aid of the displaced persons and new born babies and their mothers.
While in the camps, they only experience brief relief and succor from the long and strenuous journey of rape,torture and abuse. As the after-thought of their situation, and realization of the fact that they have no homes anymore, or family members have departed their sides through death sets in, they become depressed and despondent.
“Though the camp management, and other relevant agencies are doing their best, they are in dire need of assistance,” Honorable Iheanacho Charles( the founder) said.
