"From time to time the charity arm of our church sponsors a charity feeding program in the community, where church members donate non-perishable food items and toiletries to feeding centres and night shelters across the country to address hunger and homelessness," Pastor Julius said.

"Hundreds of people over the years have already benefited from this social welfare scheme in the rehabilitation of the homeless, drug addicts and other social miscreants."

The project is called Feed The Hungry and on December 22, items were donated to the Welcome Centre in St Marys Road and the Salvation Army in Clements Road, along with various other charities.
