|You can encourage Eva |
by writing her a letter.
Eva Abdullah, 17, converted to Christianity from Islam three years ago. Her parents disowned her after her conversion and a group of radicals in her hometown of Bagamoyo tried to persuade her to renounce her Christian faith. When she refused, they falsely accused her of desecrating a Qur'an. Many Christian leaders were afraid to defend Eva because of the Muslim dominance in the district.
On July 26, Eva was sentenced to two years in prison by a judge who was allegedly bribed by the Islamic militants.
Please write a letter to Eva, reminding her that Christians around the world are concerned about her situation and are praying for her.
Mail your letters to:
Bagamoyo District Prison
P.O. Box 92
Please note: When writing a letter, never mention the name of the source of your information or the name of any organization such as Voice of the Martyrs or Prisoner Alert. It is not dangerous for a prisoner to receive letters from individuals, but if an organization is mentioned they may be accused of links with “foreign organizations” and receive harsher sentences. Also, please do not state anything negative about their government. For more information on letter writing, click here.
