URGENT CRISIS: One of PAO’s close partners, International Justice Mission, has recently shared that one of their attorneys and the man he was defending were abducted during a recess of their trial. If you are reading this, please lift up in prayer these men, their families, and those who are fighting to bring them back home. You can help partner with us in this fight by bringing awareness through social media.
IJM is closely collaborating with local and national law enforcement officials in Kenya who are leading the ongoing investigation. Within hours of learning of the incident, IJM leadership activated crisis-response teams in Nairobi as well as Washington, DC, to work with police officials on the ground and to support the families involved.
IJM’s teams, the Kenyan police, and our partners are working around the clock to find the men and care for their families, and we’d like your help mobilizing on social media and asking the Kenyan ambassador to urge his government to find these missing men and bring them safely home.
