Ever desirous for the Welfare and wellbeing of the people, Pastor and Pastor Mrs Kufre Eyo Abasi of Wihofa City in conjunction with Ekwin, Partners and Fountain Splash Initiative on Saturday 16th May 2020, provided palliatives to the people and residents of Apo-Abuja to cushion the effect of restrictions aimed at containing the spread of Coronavirus.
Speaking at the event Hon. Eswiel Abiodun special adviser and representative of the chairman Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) said, it is a laudable initiative and she is appealing to other bodies and institutions to emulate the same by starting from their immediate environment where they are located and by doing this, they are fulfilling the word of God and helping the people in need and also assisting the government to meet up with the needs of the people around them, She also said Amac has been doing alot because within AMAC, they have distributed palliative to more than 33,000 household and Amac constitute 12wards starting from Karshi-Gwagwa-Jiuwa-Karmo etc and they have done the first round and they are hoping to start the second round with the support of the minister for state who is the one anchoring the distribution of palliative in Fct.
This is not the first time Pastor Kufre and his adorable wife, generously dispensed the milk of human kindness to the people following Government lockdown since March 2020.
Since they assumed Ministry, it has been their practice to share welfare materials to members and non members who need them, empower others to start their businesses and execute developmental projects as part of the Church’s corporate responsibility to her host community. It is Christianity in action.
Pastor Kufre prayed for the recipients and declared an end to COVID-19 pandemic, emphasizing that, “The motivation and reason for this outreach is Jesus and the physical act of ministry is reaching, touching and giving alms to the needy and those who are the less privilege in the society”.
He said the Church will always care for the Spiritual, physical and material wellbeing of the people and enjoined privileged ones to do likewise. Pastor Kufre said this is beyond the church and government alone and he ask well to do people to be more charitable and to the weary out there, he said they should have hope and he called on all and sundry never to despise anybody.
As we do so, God’s blessing shall be our portion in Jesus name.
Also speaking some of the beneficiaries said they really appreciated Wihofa city for such kind gestures and that, They truely have the love of God in them because if they don’t know God, they can’t share with others because there are many who have the money but they can’t give it to people who are in need and the word of God admonished us to help and do good to people just like Wihofa city has been doing.
They prayed to God to bless Wihofa and their partners especially their families the more and give them the abilities to do more. The beneficiaries called and appealed to the well to do and wealthy individuals, corporate bodies and even the government to partner, support and join effort with Wihofa city so they can do more by reaching out to more people who are gravely affected due to this pandemic.
