Copperbelt Province Administration has donated 300 bags of mealie meal and 1, 000 face masks to various churches in Ndola.
Provincial Permanent Secretary (PS), Bright Nundwe says the donated items are meant to caution the challenges some churches are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, Mr. Nundwe said government has been finding ways of assisting the church with various empowerment schemes including monetary support.
“We know COVID-19 has affected every single person in the country including the church that is why we thought of donating something that will help sustain them,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mr. Nundwe has urged the clergy to help sensitize their members to adhere to the COVID-19 health guidelines during church services.
And Ndola Christian Ministers Fellowship, Catherine Ngosa has thanked government for empowering the church.
Pastor Ngosa said the donation will help mitigate some of the challenges most families are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Most families including pastors have also succumbed to COVID-19 and such a gesture will always act as a reliever to most of the orphans and other members left behind,” she said.
Zambians, the govt is obliged to look after you and not give you bags of mealie meal before elections and forget about you afterwards. Only to remember before the next elections. They are not doing you a favor. Listen to what all parties are offering and vote wisely. And hold those in power to account.
Is that empowerment? What is 300 bags of meali meal.
Since when did mealie meal and face masks became empowerment
Donating face masks is charity. With the little we have, let us leave no one behind.
The church must be the one to empower the governments because our source is endless. Be a proud servant of God who still believes in God the provider!!!
