US President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka recently met two Chibok girls at the White House.

Joy Bishara, 20, and Lydia Pogu, were among 57 girls who escaped from Boko Haram in Borno by jumping the back of a truck in 2014.

A photo confirming the meeting between Trump and the two girls was chosen as the "Photo of the Day" of the White House for Wednesday, June 28, 2017.
The two moved to the United States in August 2014 with the help of the Jubilee campaign

The local media portal, The Cable, reports that Joy and Lydia graduated from Canyonville Christian Academy in Oregon in February of this year and is trying to raise funds to continue her studies. They are supported by Jubilee Campaign, a human rights group in Virginia, African reports.

The majority of girls have since been released by the terrorist group in prisoner swaps with the Nigerian government, although dozens remain with the Boko Haram.

More than 270 girls were abducted by Boko Haram from their high school in Chibok in April 2014.

Much of the world learned the terrorist group Boko Haram after removing more than 270 Chibok girls, which led to a worldwide outrage with a #bringbackirlirls campaign hashtag calling for help from the girls.

Boko Haram targeted girls and women to carry out their attacks mainly in northeastern Nigeria.
