According to Pastor Oye the donations is another in the series of Humanitarian projects of the foundation and the transforming Church since the emergence of Coronavirus ravaging the world. Humanity and compassion are part of the tenets of Christianity hence the need for Nigerians to assist the needy irrespective of religious affiliations.
Speaking at the distribution of the palliatives, the Pastor of the Transforming Church Center Gwarimpa, Pastor John Ibeh described the gesture as apt and timely in view of the the alarming rate of poverty in the society attributed to all form of social vices.
Materials donated include, thousands of facemask, hand sanitizers, hand gloves as well as bags of rice Noddles, among others.
This is not the first time Pastor Sam Oye and the Mercy House Foundation, 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.
Describing the event as Christianity in action, he call on the FCT Minister to be part of the next palliative distribution by the Church.
The beneficiaries thanked the donor for the gesture and prayed God to reward them and they really appreciated, The Transforming Church for such kind gestures, saying 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 even when the word of God admonished us to help and do good to people just like The Transforming Church has been doing.
They prayed to God to bless Pastor Sam Oye and their partners especially their families the more and give them the abilities to do more.
The beneficiaries appealed to all well-to-do individuals, corporate bodies and even the government to partner, support and join effort with The Transforming Church so they can do more by reaching out to more people who are gravely affected due to the impact of the pandemic.
