This really is the essence of the church to care for the less priviledge. Christianity is about making lives better for people around.
About 30, 000 underprivileged children drawn from three communities in Warri, will this year benefit from the Christ Embassy Delta State-sponsored Inner City Mission Children Food Bank.
The programme which was inaugurated in 2013, has fed over 60,000 homeless and underprivileged children across various communities in the area, Warri Zonal Director of the church, Pastor Ciji Darah told journalists at the scheme opening.
The Zonal Director who was represented by the Senior Pastor of the zone, Pastor Yemi Morakinyo added that the initiative intends to secure and redirect the future of abandoned children who might have wasted their lives on prostitution, armed robbery and other vices.
He explained that aside the food distribution to poverty-stricken children in Igbudu, Iyara, Warri Inland communities, the church is also embarking on family support, back to school initiatives, provision of pipe borne water and public toilets to the communities.

1 Tim 6:17-19 “Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.(NIV)”
