Christians in Sudan: Damare Garang
Damare Garang is a 15-year-old Sudanese Christian. When Damare was seven years old, he was captured from his village by militant Islamists and sold into slavery. His master punished Damare for sneaking away to attend church:
The master found a large board, several rusty spikes and a hammer and dragged Damare out to the edge of his compound. He forced Damare’s legs over the board and drove the long nails through his knees and feet. Then he turned and walked away, leaving the boy laying in the field screaming from pain.
Find out how Damare was rescued, and about Christians around the world who are being persecuted for their faith — and what you can do about it — at Persecution.com.
