RCCG Women Donate to IDPs in Abuja

The women of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Latter House Glory Zone, on Saturday extended a philanthropic hand to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), camp in Area 1 Abuja, where they donated clothes, food items and toiletries.

Speaking with Tribune Online, the leader of the team, Pastor Mrs Bolanle Agboola said the inspiration to donate to the needy was conceived to emulate the works of Jesus Christ when He was in the world, where He was making life comfortable for people.

According to her “what inspired this visit is the love of Christ, the Bible tells us in the book of Act 10:38, that God anointed Jesus Christ, and he went about doing good, when Jesus was in this world, all he was doing was to make life more comfortable for the better for people, and that is the inspiration we had.”

“And also, we are women and mothers, because the way mothers are wired are different from the way fathers are wired, women feel pain more than the child, so when we see people passing through pains in the society, we as women and mothers, feel the pains.”

Pastor Mrs Agboola further said that there were plans to continue the donation subsequently, adding that they have other places they visit to donate to the needy in the society.

“We plan to continue on this visit because it is a vision given to us as women by God at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Latter House Glory Zone, we go out not only to IDP centers, even to orphanages, to old people’s home to give them the little we have, because the church is set up to touch lives.”

While receiving the items, the coordinator of the Camp, Idris Ibrahim, who was delighted, said: “We hope that the God that touched your heart will continue to empower you to give attention to the needy, and to have enough to give to the needy.”

The camp is housing about 2740 internally displaced persons majorly from the Northeast where Boko Haram activities forced them out of their homes. Children constitute the largest number of the IDPs.
