COVID-19: Grace Nation distributes food items to less privileged
The church through the Chris Okafor Humanity Foundation had in the past few weeks, gave out food items and sanitisers worth millions of naira to members and others in Lagos and the six geo-political zones of the country.
Speaking to The Guardian, General Overseer of the church, Dr. Chris Okafor explained that his love for giving made him provide food items on regular basis to the less privileged even before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
He said: “The truth is that outside of preaching the word of God, the other thing that gives me so much joy is helping the poor.
“But being a good Christian, we just do it and we don’t make noise about it.
“Sincerely, I wish I could do more.
“Nonetheless, I thank the Lord for the little He’s using us to do, both here and also in other places.”
Okafor said the church will not relent in praying for divine intervention to end the pandemic. He also advised Nigerians to be law-abiding and keep to all the safety regulations.
One of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Salako Toyin said: “Whether you are a church member, Christian, Muslim or even pagan, he doesn’t care about that. He just gives to everybody. And the pastor does this monthly and not necessarily because of COVID-19.
“I have always benefited from his kind gesture because I stay not too far from the church.
“Beyond the foodstuff, those of us around here are also grateful to him for providing our community with the road, water and a transformer.”
