Four-year-old Bitrus lost his parents in an attack by the Fulani herdsmen militia (note: Boko Haram and the Fulani herdsmen are the two terrorist groups in Nigeria that target Christians for murder). His mother was raped and then stabbed to death in front of her four children. They had to watch their mother bleed to death. An argument outside the house distracted the killers. As everyone ran outside, Bitrus and his siblings ran out the back door. But the Fulanis noticed their escape. They opened fire on the children. Only Bitrus survived with a gunshot wound because he was presumed dead. Later he could be brought to the GAMB orphanage because people told about a good home in Enugu. There, nuns would lovingly take care of abandoned children. The boy now plays with other children and starts to smile again. But Bitrus is severely traumatized. The wound on his leg is slow to heal and expensive medication is needed to keep it intact. That Bitrus survived is a miracle Thus he became a symbol for the many children at the GAMB orphanage in Enugu who are persecuted for their Christian faith and have lost their parents.
