The church, CAC Surrey Docks has been caring for the needy, sending out words of God and prayers to empower souls and impart lives for the past 31 years. The church has six branches across the UK with its district headquarters located at 163, Ilderton Road, London SE16 since 1990.
Standing together for dignity, equality and justice, Christian Aid has been helping to change the lives of people of all faiths and without faith in the poorest communities around the world.
According to report made available to the Publicity & Publications Department of the CAC Surrey Docks, the roles played by members of the Evangelism Department of the church, was very well appreciated as they exhibited dedication towards the fund raising effort of the Christian Aid Week.
The team led by Lady Evangelists Ogunrinde, ably supported by Deaconess Grace Ajakaiye included Lady Evangelist Yetunde Saliu, Sister Golda Abiola, Brother John Falode, Sister Ranti, Sister Adenike Ayodeji, Grandma Elegbede and Pa Samuel Solarin who all believe that, as Christians, we can create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. Together we can help build hurricane-proof homes that will last and help families to weather future storms.
Christian Aid said, some of those expected to benefit from the funds raised include Jocelyne, who lost everything when Hurricane Matthew tore through Haiti. She now lives under a tarpaulin sheet and is scared she won’t survive the next hurricane season. The funds will help to build disaster-proof homes for vulnerable people like Jocelyne in Haiti.
Christian Aid’s humanitarian works have extended to so many part of Africa, in Nigeria where on-going terrorist attacks have displaced around two million people. InSierra Leone where torrential rain caused fatal flooding and mudslides in mid-August, killing more than 1,000 people, including many children. And in Sudanwhere conflict and instability, sexual abuse, executions and other human rights abuses, continue amid severe humanitarian needs.
This Christian Aid Week (13-19 May 2018), is asking everyone to Stand Together and help families to weather future storms as the hurricane season is approaching.
