The church is often expected to cooperate with goverment bodies to perform civic duties which are usually preached from behind the pulpits and these two huges denominations have done just that.
Led by Rev. Steve Mensah (C.E.M) and Bishop Dag Heward-Mills (L.C.I), the event, "A Day of Help" truly lived up to its name.
Several items were given given out to "handicapped" persons and with the aid of the C.E.P.D.
Some of the activities that went on during the event were:
- Free screening from doctors, nurses, optomologists, pharmacists, dentists, physiotherapists and other health speacialists.
- Free distribution of good-conditioned clothing, food, toiletries, matresses and many more
The church in more ways than one have always been an key charity-orieinted group and is driven by the fact that we are urged to freely give because we have also recieved in like manner.
The Independence Square (the venue for the occassion) was chock full of people who had come to praticipate in the event in the least way possible to make sure that it was successful.

It still remains a duty to all Christians worldwide to reachout out to the poor and the needy. Not all charitable acts may be given publicity but everything is still viewed in the eyes of one person whose gaze we cannot escape: God. He will reward us openly for all the things we do secretly.
Help a soul today if you can.
