Chibok Schoolgirls Read Letter To Trump In The White House
Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu, were among the Chibok schoolgirls, who escaped from Boko Haram captivity in 2014.
They had been taken to America where they were rehabilitated, put back to school.
Recently, they visited American President, Donald Trump and read a letter applauding him and asking him to keep keeping America and Americans safe.
The White House released more photos of the girls on Saturday, saying during their visit, Joy and Lyida “read the President a letter about their experience”.
An excerpt from the letter read:
“Mr. President, we urge you to keep America safe and strong. We know that some people are trying to discourage you.
“Do not be discouraged. You are right to keep American safe and strong. Not only for America. But for the world.
“If America is not safe and strong, where can people like us look for hope, when there is danger? Finally, we urge you to keep making America prosperous.”
Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, hosted the Chibok schoolgirls during their visit, the White House said.
Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu are recent graduates of Canyonville Christian Academy in Oregon, and they were accompanied by the school President, Doug Wead during their visit.
According to the White House statement, the President and Ivanka were both deeply moved by the girls’ visit, noting that “the two Chibok schoolgirls’ visit to the White House was a reminder that the survivors of the scourge of human trafficking are heroes whose courage can inspire us all.”
