The distribution exercise on Sunday in Sophia

HAVING donated hampers in La Parfaite Harmonie on the West Bank Demerara, and villages in Region One (Barima-Waini), the Shepherd’s Touch Church of God in Christ last Sunday took its ministry to the people of Sophia, here in Georgetown.

Armed with loads of foodstuff and items of clothing, the religious organisation did at Sophia what it has been doing for the main branch, which is located at Port Kaituma, in the North West District.

Over the past few months, the church, having distributed a number of hampers in Port Kaituma, has been helping a number of Venezuelans who’ve sought refuge in Region One.
“We’re in Farmers’ Field, South Sophia; we’re distributing hampers to families here today. It’s a blessing to be here, and great things are being done here today. Persons are coming from all over; the folks really came out,” said head of the church Pastor Jose Francis.
Many of those receiving the donations were very happy, and expressed their gratitude.
“What I received today is a blessing to me, because times hard due to the ‘Corona’. I’m not working, and I have three children to maintain, so I am very much grateful, and God bless you,” noted one of the recipients.

Since Guyana was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic back in March, measures implemented to curb the spread of the disease has been curtailing economic activities and reducing income for many persons.

The project obtains much of its support from other organisations such as Food for the Poor and Anastacia Stationery, and several private citizens from around the country.
