ZWEDRU, January 21 (LINA) - The United Methodist Church (UMC) in collaboration with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) has begun the distribution of food items to vulnerable parishioners in Grand Gedeh County.
Rev. Samson W. Karnwea told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday in Zwedru that the items include rice, beans, oil and dried fish, and will be distributed to over 300 persons.
Karnwea disclosed that after Grand Gedeh, the exercise will be extended to UMC churches in the rest of the south-eastern region, including Grand Kru, Maryland and Sinoe counties.
He noted that donation to the vulnerable of the UMC churches is in keeping with Biblical principles and teachings, which instruct the church to help the needy and give to the poor
