At this moment, I am so grateful, so content and emotional because the Church has come to give much help. Thank you very much!)

Thus expressed Janette Corda, a volunteer leader of Gra de Blat, a non-governmental organization which aims to alleviate the food shortage and other scarcity in the said community of Spain (, after the food donation drive conducted by the Local Congregation of BarcelonaEcclesiastical District of Spain on March 9, 2024, spearheaded by the Buklod organization.

The brethren donated basic food necessities to the Gra de Blat. Donated items include rice, cooking oil, canned food, pasta, tomato sauce, milk, among many more.

Buklod officers in our congregation prepared much for this event. Through the unity of the brethren in Barcelona, we were able to do things according to plan. We hope that we were able to help our fellowmen who lack their needs, especially food,” said Kelvin Martinez, Buklod local president.

Emercedita Secuban, a choir member, conveyed, “Despite the rainy weather, I am so happy that I was able to participate today. I really strove my best to be united with my brothers and sisters here so that we can help those in need.” – With reports from Noemi Jimenez of INC News Section
