In honor of Eid el-Kabir, the Christ Evangelical and Life Intervention Fellowship Ministry has given meals to underprivileged Muslims and orphans. The church claimed that in order to foster good ties between Christians and Muslims in Kaduna state, it also gave youngsters "Barka da Sallah" cash.

Yohanna Buru, the general overseer of the church, stated that it is essential to assist the underprivileged Muslims in enjoying the holiday.

He said it is the practice of the church to distribute food to about 600 – 700 people every year but it was increased this time due to the rise in the number of people at the various distribution areas.

Pastor Buru said most of the beneficiaries were street beggars, widows, orphans and some internally displaced persons. The clergy added that the practice, which has lasted 11 years, is aimed at promoting religious tolerance, and interreligious dialogue for peace and unity in the Kaduna State as well as fostering peaceful co-existence between Muslims and Christians.

He urged wealthy Muslims and Christians around the country to help the needy, widows and orphans to lessen their sufferings, adding that “we are all brothers and sisters and must support each other to live in peace and harmony”.
