The remaining 12 of the 17 missionaries and their families that were kidnapped by the 400 Mawozo gang in October were released this week after nearly two months in captivity.

The gang had previously released two hostages in November and three earlier in December due to health reasons.

The group, which included six men, six women, and five children, was part of the Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries (CAM). They were kidnapped on Oct 16, 2021, as they were visiting an orphanage in Ganthier, Haiti.

Reports indicated that the gang was demanding a ransom of $1 million for the release of each hostage. It is uncertain if CAM paid a ransom for their release.

CAM released the following statement on its website:

We glorify God for answered prayer — the remaining twelve hostages are FREE! Join us in praising God that all seventeen of our loved ones are now safe. Thank you for your fervent prayers throughout the past two months. We hope to provide more information as we are able.
