Theme: ALLEVIATING HUNGER: ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME.
KUDOS TO THE JUSTICE DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE CENTRE (JDPC), LAGOS!
- ESTABLISHES FOOD BANK TO FEED THE POOR AND HUNGRY
Away from engagements with the country’s prison system (custodial services), human trafficking menace, combatting illicit drugs, and good governance issues, the JDPC on Monday the 17th of October, and Thursday 20th of October finally embarked on the long cherished desire of feeding the poor across the Lagos metropolis two times every week.
About 350 persons have been reached and fed so far. The work has just begun.
It was both gratifying to come to the aid of the less privileged in such a practical and direct manner. At the same time, the state of hopelessness and want among so many people was despairing though elevating, that one’s little contribution was making a difference no matter how small.
The ultimate objective is to feed as many as 500 or more during each round event as the JDPC is hoping to make this food bank project a bi-weekly affair.
