Basking in the spirit of the Easter celebration, the Israel Ibeleme Foundation has touched lives in Tofa village, Karu Local Government Area in Nasarawa State.
Religious barriers were broken as both Muslims and Christians benefited from the outreach.
The foundation, which also celebrated its 12 years of existence, took it upon itself to build and stock two tea shops for the less privileged, which were handed over to one Christian and one Muslim male.
In his speech at the Foundation’s Easter Outreach for the Less Privileged/Youth Empowerment, the CEO, Ambassador Israel Ibeleme, called on the indigenes to emulate the life of Christ by showing compassion and love to everyone around as well as building a strong personal relationship with God.
According to him, “As we know, our nation is multi-religious I therefore call on every one of you irrespective of your beliefs or religion to show love to one another.
“We will train four of your daughters on one year fashion designing, two Muslims and two Christians. We have already bought their sewing machines and all the equipment they would need.
“The widows are not left out as we intend to give food items to about 500 persons including the Christian and Muslim families, so as we celebrate, let’s remember the future of our Nation and live as one united nation. Let every one of us preach peace and live in harmony with our neighbours while building strong relationship with God.”
Ibeleme further urged them to keep praying for the unity of the nation, the Government of Nasarawa State, the leaders and President Muhammadu Buhari and his team.
“This year marks the 12th year of Israel Ibeleme Foundation and we use this opportunity to thank God for bringing us this far. At Israel Ibeleme Foundation, we will continue to strive to assist people in need, to give them a better life and build back their hope against all odds. And with God on our side, we will do more than we ever hoped to do.
“Our mission is to reach out to those we can, help those we can help, do the little we can and let God do the rest,” he added.
He appreciated the King of Tofa Village and all his cabinet members for their moral support, the Emir of Karu Local Government and all his cabinet members, volunteers and all those who supported the project.
