Church donates to Red Cross Orphanage, SOS Village , others
In the spirit of the season, the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) worldwide yesterday donated food items for the upkeep of children in Red Cross Orphanage Home at Makoko and the SOS Children Village at Isolo, both in Lagos.
Items donated at the SOS include hundreds of tubers of yam, cartons of indomie noodle, kegs of groundnut oil, 30 bags of rice and large bags of beans. The same items were given to the kids in Makoko.
Leader of the delegation, Prophet Emmanuel Soyemi, said the gesture was part of the ongoing activities to mark the 70th anniversary of the church, and to make life meaningful for the less privileged during the Christmas season.
Soyemi said: “Jesus Christ asks us to take care of his people. The CCC was at the Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) camp in Abuja last week to donate similar items to victims of terrorism. We have donated the same items to the orphanage home in Makoko today and now we are at SOS to do the same. . Corruption in the society should be tackled so that the national wealth can be used to take care of all.”
