At a time of great uncertainty in our world today, there are millions of displaced people all over the world who need our help.
The founder of Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI), Chris Oyakhilome was quoted as saying: “Global poverty is one of the very worst problems that the world faces today, the poorest in the world are often hungry, have much less access to education, regularly have no light at night, and suffer from much poorer health. Making progress against poverty is, therefore, one of the most urgent global goals.”
Eradicating poverty has always been a top priority at the InnerCity Mission (ICM). The InnerCity Mission has had remarkable achievements over the years, which are clear testimonies of the unwavering commitment to finding lasting solutions to the issue of poverty.
Lessons We Learn from The Bible
Chris Oyakhilome besides being a passionate philanthropist is also a world-renown Man of God and founder of Christ Embassy, the LoveWorld Nation, one of the largest churches in the world. As an ambassador for Christ and with such a diverse and successful ministry, it’s easy to see how Pastor Chris’s message has reached so many souls, his charity also provides sustenance to indigent children.
Chris Oyakhilome encourages the world to contribute to needy children and families living in underserved communities, saying:
“You would discover greater treasures the Lord has deposited in you if you reach out to others.” He has urged the world to show them what true love means by sponsoring meals for them.
In Mathew 19:26, the Bible says that Jesus looked at them and said, “With man, this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” Most indigent children and families find it hard to eat three times a day. A daily meal now seems almost impossible, but as outstretched arms of God, we are making it possible through the #HungerActionMonth Campaign.
“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
School Meals Have a Ripple Effect
Many children who do not have enough to eat wind up with a diminished capacity to understand and learn in class but you can do something about this!
A meal at School acts as a magnet to get indigent children into the classroom. By continuously sponsoring daily meals for indigent children, you help keep them in school rather than scavenging in the refuse dump or roaming the streets looking for what to eat.
Many low-income families are finding it hard to feed their children, especially with the hike in food prices. Eradicating poverty has always been a top priority at the InnerCity Mission (ICM). The InnerCity Mission has had remarkable achievements over the years, which are clear testimonies of the unwavering commitment to finding lasting solutions to the issue of poverty. This is the dream and the legacy of Chris Oyakhilome himself, who launched the Hunger Action Month (HAM) Campaign which will run till the end of March.
Global hunger creates a cycle that people can’t escape from. It causes individuals to be less productive and more prone to disease, which in turn makes them less able to improve their livelihoods or earn a better income. But with the planet producing enough food to feed everyone, why are so many people going hungry? Get the facts about world hunger and what you can do to help.
The fact that there are so many hungry people in the world today is mind-boggling when you think about it. The sad reality is that there are still millions of people who still do not have enough food to eat.
Be part of making changes in the lives of millions of needy people, and be part of the solution to eradicating hunger worldwide.
