Daystar Christian Centre has donated N10 million to the United Nations High Commission for Refugee, UNHCR, to support people displaced by insurgency in the country and other African nations.

Handing over the cheque to officials of the agency in Lagos, the Senior Pastor of the Church, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, said the gesture was in line with the mission of the church to reduce the sufferings of the internally displaced persons, IDPs.
Adeyemi urged stakeholders, especially the church community in the country, to emulate the gesture by bringing relief to those affected.

His words: “We just like to say first to the church community that people’s problems are actually our own opportunities to bring the power of God and the resources at our disposal to meet those tactical needs, that is why the church exist, so we want to say to the Church community, this is another dimension to the problems Jesus called us to solve, their needs are dire, they have experienced trauma, they need therapy and we want to ask the church community, let’s step in and do more for these people.”
The UNHCR’s Country Representative to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Antonio Jose Canhandula, who painted a vivid picture of the trauma and sufferings being experienced by the IDPs, said the donation would be used to provide life-saving emergency assistance to families forced to flee their homes.
He also urged the authorities to check the issues of herdsmen in the Middle-Belt before it deteriorated further.
