“We do this celebration with food aid for the less-privileged children,” he said.
Pastor Edith Ibeneme, who spoke on behalf of Christ Embassy, thanked GLO Touch Foundation for celebrating the day.
Madam Ibeneme added that every 27 May is World Children’s Day hence they decided to observe it for the children fashionably this time around.
“Our president of Christ Embassy instructed us to celebrate this important day for the children, especially for the less privileged,” she said.
“Our president also advises us to treat other children the same way and manner we treat our children,” she said.
“This year we decided to collaborate to reach out to the children in this particular area with some Christian materials.
“This is our 11th year under Christ Embassy called Inner-city Mission, which is in Nigeria, as an NGO that caters for children.
“What we are doing here today is just to reach the Inner-city Mission in Nigeria.”
