In December 2004, Rev Dr. Chris Oyakhilome took a stand against Child Poverty when he said, "Every Child is your Child". More recently he added – “it is in your interest to help the poor, if you don't reach them quickly and get them off the streets, you are helping to create the difficulties for the future. Don’t ignore their cry for help”. Child Poverty is a global epidemic that threatens the future because childhood is under threat from Poverty. The #EndChildPovertyNOW Campaign is a special collaborative effort of the BLW Campus Ministry and the InnerCity Mission for Children as we take our stand with our man of God Rev Dr. Chris Oyakhilome against Child Poverty.
The year 2015 marks the target date of the MDGs and despite the gains made, Child Poverty remains a global epidemic.
Every Child is your Child! We have a divine responsibility to God, to the Church and the society to reach children in our inner cities. Don't ignore their cry for help. If we don't educate them, they will be the source of danger in fifteenyears time.
Rev Dr. Chris Oyakhilome
According to UNICEF, childhood is under threat from Poverty - every 3.6 seconds one person dies of starvation and usually it is a child under the age of five. The children are our future, so we must TAKE ACTION NOW to eradicate extreme Child Poverty and Hunger; everyone has a part to play to stop this epidemic and save the future.
