COVID-19 PALLIATIVES FOR WNCC COMMUNITIES AND AREA MINISTERS
In the midst of the lockdowns as a result of the need to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, poverty that has remained pervasive became intensified as those who earn their living on daily basis were not able to go to work. The palliative promised by government was not forthcoming and where it was available, was politized. Prices of food stuffs skyrocketed. There was much hunger in the land. People were actually dying of hunger than the pandemic. Daily workers, children and elderly ones were most vulnerable. As the people of God within the community, we cannot just close our eyes to these sufferings. Following the footsteps of our Lord, who saw people in deplorable condition; condition that dishonors God that created them and had compassion on them, we could not afford to do otherwise. WNCC was empowered by the generosity of brethren from the United States, superintended, by Chad Wagner, the President of African Christian Schools Foundation, to provide succor for our neighbors and ministers. The palliatives made up of rice (6 bags), beans (3 bags), eggs (70 crates), groundnut oil (5 packs) and salt (2 bags of 70 sachets each) were packaged for 64 families in six villages and ministers of churches of Christ in Abeokuta. The recipients were full of gratitude to the donors praying that their coasts be enlarged and their heavenly reward be assured.
