Once again the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has donated 100 bags of rice and 50 bags of beans to people as the lockdown against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic is extended by another two weeks.
According to the church, the feeding program was another in the series of feeding projects carried out and that there were about 4000 people beneficiaries. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the church has increased its daily feeding capacity through its centres in Lagos to catering for more people as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown.
Following the development, the church extended its hand of fellowship to people, especially the needy and underprivileged with the distribution of food items at the national headquarters of the church, Ebute Metta, Lagos.
While presenting the items, the representative Assistant General Overseer on Admin/Personnel, Pastor J. F. Odesola, who represented the General Overseer, Enoch Adeboye, said, “We know that love isn’t merely expressed through words but in acts. At RCCG, we are even more determined to relieve many of the hardship brought on by COVID-19 through our feeding projects in Nigeria and other countries.”
Another parish, RCCG Region 12, Sagamu, Ogun State, also donated various food items including cartons of noodles, bags of rice and garri, running into millions of naira to communities across the state.
The Pastor-in-Charge of RCCG, Region 12, Sagamu, Ogun State, Pastor Julius Olalekan, on behalf of Pastor Adeboye, made the presentation of the food items last Monday at the regional headquarters in Sagamu.
Pastor Olalekan said that the gesture was in line with the directive of the RCCG General Overseer who has also been playing very prominent roles both physically and spiritually to ensure Nigerians and the government were supported amidst the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, “our father in the Lord and General Overseer of RCCG, Daddy Adeboye has directed that it doesn’t matter what is happening, the people must be fed, we must not allow our people to go hungry due to the lockdown order to combat COVID-19.
“This is coming at a time we are celebrating our Lord Jesus who gave Himself for mankind on the cross of calvary. So, there is nothing too big to give in support of one another at this period. This is really our third outing and we will still do more to ensure that our people do not go hungry.”
