NATIONAL President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN and General Overseer of Warri-based Word of Life Bible Church, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has donated items worth millions of naira to victims of floods that had ravaged parts of the country scattered in different camps in Delta State.
A church delegation led by the wife of the CAN president, Pastor (Mrs.) Helen Oritsejafor visited different centres set up by the Delta State Government with trucks containing relief materials to cushion the debilitating effect of the flood on hundreds of thousands of displaced persons in the state.
Donating food items including bags of rice, beans, garri, jerry cans of vegetable oil, bags of salt and cartons of toiletries to alleviate the suffering of the internally displaced persons and their children at the different camps, Pastor Oritsejafor told the affected victims that church was moved by the devastation of disaster.
The delegation visited the Carveginia Primary School resettlement centre in Warri, Ogbe Ijoh Primary School also in Warri, Oharisi Primary School camp in Ughelli, St. Michael College, Oleh, the headquarters of Isoko South Local Government Area as well as the camp located in AGGS, Ozoro in Isoko North Local Government Area.
The church also took the gospel of love to the Otu Jeremi and Okwagbe, both in Ughelli South Local Government Area camps and was received by welfare officers drawn from different organizations and government, with words of encouragement to the victims.
Drawing inspiration from different biblical passages, Mama Oritsejafor told the flood victims to always draw closer to their Maker who only can adequately comfort them at a time like this and take them through this current wilderness period.
