The beneficiary communities were adversely affected by last year’s mudslide and flooding during which disaster the United Methodist Church provided relief items and medical care to the victims.  

According to the facilitators of the program, sisters Ethel Sandy, Olivia Fonnie and Elfrida Fawundu, the funds for the procurement of the items were provided by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) in the United States that is also funding the construction of four (4) hand pump water wells in the affected communities costing $48,000 (forty-eight thousand dollars).

They further assured that after construction of the four water wells, they would be well-secured and that some members of the beneficiary communities would be trained to maintain them and promised that if additional funds are available, more of such donations would be made to the less-privileged.

Baba Drilling and Excavation Company is constructing the four water wells.

The head teacher and some of the pupils of the beneficiary schools, including Samuel Samura, a Class 6 pupil of the Faith International School, thanked the Bishop of the United Methodist Church; Dr. John Yambasu for the gesture which they assured would help them in their studies and prayed that God continues to bless him abundantly.

One of the beneficiary schools, Bethel Nursery and Preparatory School at Pentagon, has since 2010 when the pupils first attempted the Basic Education Certificate Examination as well as the National Primary School Examination, excelled in both examinations.

Highlights of the program were the praise and worship, singpiration and prayers led by Rev. Sylvester Holima and distribution of the items.
