we are very grateful for ARMS (Africa Renewal Ministries) our church partners who blessed forty families with food relief. Each family received 5kgs of rice, 5kgs of Maize flour, 3kgs of beans, 2kg of soya millet, I bar of soap,1 Sacket of salt and 30 Zinc/Vitamin tablets to boost their body immune system.

 

 

 

 

 

we hoped that our government would support us but the government food relief program was for people in municipalities.
