Tearfund is a Christian International relief and development organisation passionate about ending poverty and seeing communities flourish; and it is currently working in 53 countries of the world (Nigeria inclusive). Their vision is “to see all people freed from poverty, living transformed lives and reaching their God-given potential”. Their services are aimed at reaching all persons –especially the most vulnerable irrespective of sex, race, colour, religion, etc.
Even before this pandemic, the organization has worked with poor and vulnerable communities across Nigeria as the effects the pandemic has caused individuals and communities to show compassion as we follow Christ to minister in the midst of a crisis where the need is great. This according to the Tearfund country director, Mr Paul Mershak has inspired the “ C o v i d 19 Response I and II Launch.”
Tearfund is continuing its effort of encouraging people to keep to all safety procedures today and always as the Virus is still around
