Living Word of Faith reaches Ebola victims with food

NOVEMBER 4, 2014  By Ibrahim Tarawallie

As the government and its partners strive to intensify efforts to contain and eradicate the Ebola virus disease in the country, the Living Word of Faith Outreach Ministries International has donated food items, as well as chlorine and sanitary products to quarantined homes and Ebola survivors in the eastern city of Kenema.

According to the General Overseer and Bishop-elect, Akintayo Sam-Jolly, the church had donated to communities affected by the Ebola outbreak without making it public.

He stated that as a Christian ministry with goals, needs and assignment, they cannot stand aloof to what the nation is presently going true, adding: “If we are crying out to international communities to help us, we must do something first for ourselves as a nation.”

He disclosed that in collaboration with the Kenema Council of Pentecostal Churches, they will be distributing 260 bags of food items worth over Le52 million to Ebola victims in Kenema, plus chlorine, sanitizers and other health products to sister churches.

“As a church, we see it as our moral mandate to use the funds we have for the rightful purpose. Whatever little you can do, please let us do it to make a difference for our nation. We have stood tall in battles in the past.

What we are confronted with as a nation right now is a battle of a different nature because the Ebola virus is disastrous than the rebel war,” he said.

Also, National Coordinator for the church’s Ebola Relief Committee, Pastor Winnie Wilson, explained that Bishop-elect Sam-Jolly was able to mobilize support to help fight the Ebola epidemic when he visited the United Kingdom in July this year.

According to her, upon his arrival, a committee was set up to take up the task of providing support for quarantined homes and those affected by the Ebola virus.

“One of the missions of the ministry is to reach out to communities with relief and the love of Jesus Christ. Apart from the food items which we will donate to Ebola victims in Kenema, hand gloves, sanitizers and sanitary products will also be given to our sister churches,” she said.
