District Apostle Ndandula said this during the handover of an industrial cooker and a freezer valued at K44, 000 to Ministry of Health in Lusaka, Zambia to be used for the meals for the patients and store their foodstuffs and medicines.

 

The items were donated through the New Apostolic Church Relief Organization (NACRO), a humanitarian wing of the New Apostolic Church.

“We have been very concerned about the Cholera situation in our country and we have participated in disseminating the awareness message and the need to maintain hygienic conditions, cleaning exercises & through prayers and we will continue doing that,” he said. After consulting the Ministry Of Health, today we are donating an industrial cooker and a freezer.

The Ministry further invoked Statutory Instrument No. 79 of 2017 restricting public gathering, including any form of church gatherings.

 

District Apostle Ndandula pledged the church’s continued support and cooperation with all stakeholders to bring the cholera outbreak to an end.

 

Minister of Health Dr. Chitalu Chilufya thanked the church and other stakeholders who responded to the call of helping government by donating various items including water purifiers, safety clothing, motor vehicles, and financial assistance among others.

 

Cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if untreated. It is caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated with a bacterium called Vibrio cholera.
