Brother Eduardo L. Donato, district supervising minister, led a delegation of ministerial workers and Church officers in conducting Aid to Humanity for the benefit of the residents of Brgy. Pinamuk-an, New Washington, Aklan.

Approximately 12 kilometers away from the ecclesiastical district office along Roxas Avenue Ext., Kalibo, Aklan, Pinamuk-an is accessible only by boat from the wharf in Brgy. Ochando, New Washington.

“Moved by faith and love, the brethren here in our district continuously unite with the Church Administration in its aim of caring for our fellowmen, among others,” said Brother Lgie Cajurao, resident ministerial worker of the Local Congregation of Ochando.

In the Ecclesiastical District of Capiz, Brother Raul Alvarez, district supervising minister, led the delegation of brethren-volunteers in handing over the relief packages.

On behalf of his constituents, Barangay Chairman Jose Amendarla, said, “I thank the Iglesia Ni Cristo for these food packs intended for the benefit of [the] residents here.”
