Benin, Africa: Structures of sin such as people-smuggling and the black market (fayawo) are highly influential. Some 75% of economic activity is underground. This is deeply tied to Nigerian interests and makes Benin very vulnerable financially. Allegedly, tens of thousands of children are smuggled from Benin each year to work as child labourers, mostly to their eastern neighbours. They are often maltreated and abused. Pray for justice and righteousness to take root in Benin and for Nigeria’s influence to become a more positive and godly one. For more information go to www.operationworld.org.
