Ramadan: Church shares food to Muslims in Kaduna




The Christ Evangelical Intercessory Fellowship Ministry, Sabon Tasha, Kaduna, has shared over 500 food packs to Muslims in the community since the beginning of the Ramadan.

The Church’s General Overseer, Pastor Yohanna Buru, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Kaduna on Monday that the food packages and drinks were shared out to destitute persons and the poor.

He said the Church was in the forefront of promoting religious tolerance in Kaduna State, adding 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.”

Buru said this was not the first time the church would be distributing foodstuffs to needy Muslims during the Ramadan.

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

The cleric stressed that Islam and Christianity had many things in common as contained in the Bible and Qur’an, adding, “we are all brothers and sisters and must support each other to live in peace and harmony.”
