As the influx of Nigerians being deported from Libya continues, The SCOAN continues to help in the best way they can – with love in action and words of comfort. Having stared death and brutality in the face – they can now appreciate life.
In bids to ‘make it in life’ the mostly young Nigerians, aged from 15 upwards, travelled illegally in hope of a better future abroad. Many complained of being deceived that the journey would take two weeks and the more you paid to make the trip the smoother it would be.

The church receives an endless flow of such deportees and on a weekly basis, they are given millions of naira. This week alone N4,450,000 was given to the deportees – without question of their religion, belief or background – alongside food and further assistance.
