This intervention, which began on Monday, January 20, is currently in progress and will be for a period of ten days. It comes at a cost of $60,000 and represents another phase of the church’s ongoing effort to meet basic human needs, a release from the Church said.

Five hundred meals are prepared daily by Seventh-day Adventist Community Services volunteers and distributed from the churches in Barrouallie and South Rivers respectively.

“This service of love is demonstrative of the church’s social responsibility to suffering humanity as espoused by the tenets of the Christian faith. The church continues to pray for healing and strength to those who have been traumatized by the catastrophe and wishes a return to normalcy in the shortest possible time,” a release from the Church said.
