The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has expressed determination to continue to offer regular free medicare and palliatives to the families of fallen military officers and vulnerable people.

The Pastor of the City of David Parish, Abuja, Gbolade Okenla, said the gesture was in line with the vision and mandate of the General Overseer (GO) of RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

Okenla, who observed that the Nigerian military had been doing a lot to secure the country, said it became imminent to support them, especially the families of those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

He said, “We are reaching out to the Nigerian armed forces today, not that they need it, but because we feel we are neighbours. They have done a lot and they are still doing a lot in maintaining the territorial integrity of our nation, and the least we can do in line with the vision of our GO is to reach out to them through our Christian Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.”

Responding, the Commandant of the Mogadishu Cantonment, Major General K A Isonil, commended the church for the gesture, noting that the free healthcare and welfare items were coming at a very difficult time in the country.

Gen Isonil said, “I want to thank RCCG for bringing this medical, as well as welfare packages, right to our doorsteps. We all know how difficult it is accessing medical facilities because of the economic and other challenges in the country.”
