RCCG spends N433 million on community projects
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has spent N433million on community projects across the nation in the first quarter of 2013.
The General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, disclosed this while presenting report of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities last week.
He said the projects were spread over 353 communities in 255 local governments of the nation.
Adeboye informed the projects included construction of free community schools, provision of free potable water, scholarship for indigent students and patrol vans for police stations, among several others.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Personnel and Administration, Pastor Johnson Odesola, Adeboye said: “We want to do more as we have a mandate to spend N2billion on various community projects in 2013 that will meet the growing needs and aspiration of the people in all the 774 local government areas in Nigeria.”
Restating the commitment of the church to carrying out more developmental projects throughout the country, he said the projects were carried out after comprehensive needs assessment in the benefitting communities.
He assured of the church’s determination to complement efforts of the government in alleviating poverty through provision of health care facilities and other developmental projects for national growth and stability.
The church, Adeboye informed, is committed to providing basic necessities because poverty does not discriminate.
According to him, a real church will impact its immediate environment through the provision of developmental projects in line with the mandate of Christ.
