On September 5, 2021, the CPU-Rotary Club of Jaro Centraline (RCJC) distributed Food Assistance to Pastors and families on lockdown at the Hope Baptist Church, Badiangan, Iloilo. Despite the pandemic, Rotarians and Rotaractors from the Rotary Club of Jaro Centraline braved the situation in order to extend food and canned goods to Convention Baptist Ministers Association (CBMA) Pastors from Badiangan Circuit ministering to the congregations of the Convention Baptist Churches, Inc.
After lunch, the participants gathered at the open-air gazebo in front of the Good Hope Baptist Church. Fourteen pastors and 14 households were given food packs that include rice, eggs, fruit juice concentrate, canned goods, and energy drinks. The prayers and hopes realized the distribution of food which had somehow helped the locked down families and those in quarantine status in this difficult time.
