Providing multivitamins and nutritional supplements for female church members in Pakistan is just one way in which funds from LMI have been used to deliver essential support during a second wave of the pandemic there.
Aid efforts, organised and lead by Rev Raja Samuel, LMI’s Bible Teaching Representative for Pakistan, have also included food parcel distribution to individuals and families facing severe hardship due to lockdown.
As Rev Raja explained, “our aim was to help those church families who have lost their jobs during this pandemic and the economic conditions of their homes are getting worse”.
Rev Raja leads ‘United Care Foundation (UCF) Pakistan’, a ministry which is involved in mission mobilisation, evangelism and humanitarian work, and he and his colleagues worked hard to ensure the support reached people in serious need. One example of this is Rebeca (pictured wearing a red shawl and holding her parcel), who explained her plight:
“My name is Rebeca and I do cleaning work in other people's houses but due to the Corona the government imposed a lockdown which caused my mistress to say don't come to work until the lockdown is over so now I was at home and had no other source of income to support my family. One day some members of UCF came to my home and they gave me a food package for one month. I am very thank full to UCF team and their partners”.
We give glory to God for the success of these efforts and are thankful to everyone who supports the work of LMI, thereby making endeavours like this possible.
