GPF Nigeria Director, Rev. John Hayab, helped lead the distribution of goods, including food and soap, to members of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam and Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) within Kaduna State. Other communities also benefited from the palliatives within the week, including Mando, Mararaba Rido, Kajuru, and Kaninkon.
“Global Peace Foundation has touched 1,300 households as part of our contribution to alleviate hardship to people due to COVID-19 pandemic lockdown,” Rev.
