Ekangala not left out

Children Receiving Food and Books at ekangala

The 7th February 2010 was for the far eastern part of our Diocese. Orphaned and Vulnerable Children from the area were blessed with clothes and food parcels. Tears could only express the joy felt by the new priest in that area, Rev’d Jerry Ntlatleng. For some of these children, a meal was going to be a luxury if they did not receive the food parcels. Let us continue to ensure that children can be afforded at least a meal and education.
