MANITOBA, CANADA – The Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) held an Aid for Humanity activity in Winnipeg on September 28, 2018. The outreach activity was held at the city’s North End, one of its roughest neighborhoods and home to many poor residents, including immigrant individuals and families receiving financial assistance from the government.

The Church distributed more than 3,000 care packages at the Turtle Island Recreation Center. The care packages contained food items as well as toiletries.

The beneficiaries of the outreach activity included many residents of neighboring homeless centers who also stopped by at the venue of the outreach activity.

Judy Klassen and Cindy Lamoureux, both members of the Manitoba Legislative Assembly, were present during the event.

During the distribution of care packages, brethren provided food and entertainment to the attendees.

In an interview, Judy Klassen, expressed, “It is so heartwarming.”

“It’s so positive”, said Cindy Lamoureux.

“With God’s help, the activity went on smoothly,” said Brother Sidney Santos, one of the district supervising ministers of the Church in Canada.

The Aid for Humanity in Winnipeg came exactly a week after the outreach activity of the Church in Toronto. – With reports from INC News Section
