Ramadan: Christians shares food to hungry Muslims in Kaduna

Christ Evangelical Intercessory Fellowship Ministry, Sabon Tasha, Kaduna, has doled out over 500 food packages to Muslims, since the beginning of Ramadan.

General Overseer of the church, Pastor Yohanna Buru told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kadun, yesterday, that the food packages and drinks were shared out to the destitute and the poor.

He said the Church is in the forefront of promoting religious tolerance in Kaduna, and added that the gesture was to deepen peaceful co-existence between Muslims and Christians.

“We must support our brothers and sisters with what to eat  in these 30 days, in view of the high cost of food items in local markets.

“This gesture will strengthen good relationship with Muslims and promote religious tolerance and better understanding among different faiths.”

According to him, it is not the first time the church is distributing foodstuffs to needy Muslims during the Ramadan.

Buru recalled that the church had distributed over 1,000 packaged food and drinks to Internally Displaced Persons, destitute and prison inmates in 2016.

He decried the negative attitude of traders who usually take advantage of the Ramadan to hike prices of goods, saying that the action negates every tenet of religion.

Buru appealed to wealthy Muslims and Christians nationwide to support the poor, including widows and orphans to ease their pains.

One of the beneficiaries, Mallam Wambai Isa, who is the leader of the visually impaired persons in the state, commended Buru for his relentless efforts to bring succour to less-privileged persons.(NAN)
