The Christ Apostolic Church International, Bantama Central, has donated alcohol sanitizers, assorted food items worth GH¢40,000 and an undisclosed amount of money to the needy and the vulnerable in the church.
Items donated included 300 pieces of 500ml of sanitizers, 60 bags of rice, 22 bags of maize, 15 boxes of mackerel and 20 boxes of Sunflower oil.
This donation was necessitated by the partial lockdown in the Greater Kumasi Area, which has affected most church members who are petty traders, apprentices, widows/widowers, and many more.
This gesture which was spearheaded by the Local Management of the Church headed by Apostle S. C. K. Akomeah, Bantama Area/Local Pastor, was to alleviate the needy and the vulnerable in the local church during this era of coronavirus pandemic.
Apostle Akomeah noted that during such critical period, the church could not sit aloof and turn its back on the members; hence this donation.
He further stated that God requires from the Church philanthropists and other benevolent organizations to give to the vulnerable in the society.
The Area Head Pastor therefore entreated all and sundry to emulate this gesture and give their widow’s mite to support the needy and the vulnerable in society during this Covid-19 era and beyond.
