Church donates food, cash to 60 in Asaba

 

Champions for Christ Chapel Asaba, Delta state, has donated food items and cash worth millions of naira to about 60 members and non-members of the church

The food stuff distributed to people, including a 90 –year-old woman grappling with hunger, include rice, bread and garri.

The 90-year-old Roseline Aniojo, and Rosemary Patrick, a single mother, among others were over-excited upon receiving the food stuff.

Shortly after the donations, the Church general overseer, Samuel Akpan -Isong said his action was to raise the bar and hope of the hopeless to upscale their livelihoods.

He said he rolled out the drums of the food stuffs to stop the vulnerable from crying and dying, occasioned by the current economic hardship which is biting almost everybody in Nigeria.

According to him, “There is hunger in the land today. And I looked at the Church members, and the surrounding neighbourhood that they are not excempted because most of them are not well to do, and therefore need the support of others to survive.

“What I have done is just to make sure people are happy. So, my actions are not being politically motivated, because I’m not looking for political office, neither looking for rewards from anyone. 

“Jesus Christ had shown compassion, fed the people, particularly the poor and with the present economy challenges, people need support to stop their cries.”

The cleric, therefore, appealed to people in governments, spirited individuals and the rich in the society not to lock their gates against the poor, but to replicate what I have done in a bigger way to cushion the effects of the calamity we have found ourselves.
