Fight Against Poverty Continues in South Africa; New Jobs in Garment Factory Recently Inaugurated in Qwaqwa
QWAQWA, SOUTH AFRICA —A garment factory built through the Felix Y. Manalo (FYM) Foundation, the charitable arm of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ), was inaugurated on October 9, 2019.
The factory is situated near the new worship building of the Local Congregation of Qwaqwa, Ecclesiastical District of South Africa that was dedicated to God on the same date during a special worship service.
The garment factory inaugurated by Brother Glicerio Santos Jr., General Auditor of the INC, can employ around 600 Africans according to Brother Andre Silva, Assistant District Minister. This will provide a viable source of livelihood to provide for their needs as well as for their dependents.
It should be noted that the INC is not letting up in its advocacy in fighting poverty.
On May 6, 2018, the international religious organization led thousands in 300 sites across 18 countries
in a Worldwide Walk to Fight Poverty for the benefit of communities in Africa, which resulted in besting their own Guinness World Record which they made four years earlier.
The INC was true to its word. As of press time, it has built eco-farms in Ladybrand (pecan nuts, sheep, and goats) and Petrusburg (corn, sunflower, and cattle), in addition to one in Salima, Malawi (cashew nuts) which are able to offer jobs to hundreds of impoverished or jobless Africans.
The INC continues to help those who may be in need in adherence to the command of God. (II Cor 8:13-14, Good News Translation).
