WAIPAHU, Hawaii (Eagle News) – As the COVID-19 pandemic entered its second year with new cases surging to triple digits daily, members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) or Church Of Christ in Hawaii bravely continue their works of charity though the Church’s Aid to Humanity program.

In West Oahu, Church members distributed bags of groceries to the residents of the Waipahu Towers, an eight-storey high-rise apartment complex for low-income families. Each bag contained a loaf of bread, dried noodles, canned food, and even reading materials about the Church Of Christ.

Throughout the outreach event, INC members and their guests made sure to abide by the government-mandated safety measures, such as maintaining social distancing and wearing face masks at all times.

“Here in the State of Hawaii, no one is immune to the challenges that people face in life,” said Brother Noel C. Caritativo, INC Supervising Minister in Hawaii-Pacific. “That’s why the members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo or Church Of Christ continue to help their fellow men.”
