The InnerCity Mission for Children, in collaboration with partners in Christ Embassy Abuja Zone, tackled the issue of food insecurity as they provided 5,000 free meals and home supplies (food, toiletries and warm clothing) for a thousand families of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) drawn from 5 refugee camps in the vicinity, giving them a reason to smile again.
On ground to charge the delegation was the highly esteemed Regional Pastor, Reverend Tom Amenkhienan, who spoke about the impact the InnerCity Mission is making on countless lives around the world through her partners. Charles Oputa (a.k.a. Charly Boy), who is particularly touched by the plight of indigent children, was excited to witness this glorious impact, identifying so passionately with the vision of the InnerCity Mission and its drive to #EndChildPovertyNOW.
In joyful celebration, the expectant residents of the communities, community leaders, IDP camp chairmen and other stakeholders were on ground to receive the team. The beneficiaries not only had their obvious physical needs ministered to, their spirits and souls were nourished with God's Word, which was delivered to them in English and Hausa, their predominant language.
Over 400 indigent children and adults received Christ. The joy and excitement of the beneficiaries knew no bounds as they showered words of praise to God and gratitude to the man of God, Pastor Chris, and partners of the InnerCity Mission, for the immense kindness extended to them.
