Eid-el-Fitr Celebration: Kaduna Church shares Sallah clothes, foodstuffs, cash to about 50 orphans


Pastor Yohanna Buru, General Overseer of the Christ Evangelical and Life Intervention church, distributed Eid-el-Fitr Sallah clothes, food items, and cash gifts to Muslim orphans and widows.

Buru stated that the church helps about 50 orphans celebrate Sallah with joy and happiness, just like other children.

He claims that this is not the first time the church has sown new clothes and distributed food to orphans and widows.

“We are doing this to promote religious tolerance and foster peaceful coexistence among different faith-based organisations in the country.

“It is aimed at strengthening the relationship between Christians and Muslims in the country and to promote peace, unity, forgiveness among the adherence of the two religions.”

The cleric also congratulated Muslims all over the world on completing the 30-day fasting and prayers successfully.

He stated that the church cannot forget a Muslim woman, Hajiya Ramatu Tijjani, who remembers the church widows and orphans with food and gifts at Christmas to pastors and others.

Ramatu Tijjani, he claims, has been distributing Christmas food and other gifts to church members for the past several years.

Buru stated that they would distribute more clothing to poor orphans so that they could celebrate Sallah as joyfully as the rest of the children.

He urged Muslim and Christian clerics to significantly boost their prayers for the country’s peace and stability.
