According to the World Food Programme, one out of every nine people go to bed on an empty stomach. Of the basic necessities that man needs for life, nourishment ranks second after oxygen. This basic necessity is one of the most scarce resources on earth. The scarcity can be attributed to insufficient resources to acquire, produce or grow food.
Grieved by these members, our Father-in-the-Lord, Pastor E.A Adeboye gave a mandated to feed 50 million. This mandate was shared in March 2018 as a target for the Christian Social Responsibility of RCCG. The CSR arm of this mission is organised and operates from a central point. The central point of the CSR is His Love Foundation, which is headed by the Special Assistant to the General Overseer on Christian Social Responsiblity, Pastor Idowu Iluyomade.
Propelled by this mandate, His Love Foundation increased her hunger targeted initiatives, Sixteen daily feeding centers in Lagos are currently feeding hundreds every day without chargig them a dime. Inmates of Kirikiri Maximum Prisons in Lagos are also fed every Sunday. As at June 2019, the mandate to feed 50 million has been satisfied as RCCG has served over 60 million meals to people across the world.
Still according to WFP, 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth. This figure runs across both developing and developed countries, although the former can unfortunately boast of a large percentage. In Australia, more than 4 million people have experienced hunger in the last 1 months, while thirthy two percent(32%) of South Africa’s population are at risk of hunger, alarming 87 million Indonesians are vulnerable to food insecurity while 32 percent of Papuans of Papua New Guinea live below the poverty line, 2.9 million children also suffer same. Although conditions seem ideal in Solomon Island, 32.4 percent of the children there suffer stunted growth due to lack of adequate nourishment. An estimated 23.5 percent of Palau’s popular suffer from poverty, Nigeria, Guam, Phillipines, Kuwait, Vanuatu and New Zealand are some other countries that are battling hunger.
The Redeemed Christian Church of God has made dents in these numbers by providing foodstuffs and provisions to these countries.
To express the love of God through visible initiatives that deliver tangible outcomes in societies globally.
To be the global model for meeting the ever evolving socio economic needs.
