Women Asked To Do Charity Work
National Chairperson for World day of prayer, Esther Grant has challenged women in the country to be at the forefront in helping the needy in their respective communities.
Grant was speaking in Rumphi during a commemoration of World Day of Prayer on Saturday.
"As Christian women, we should involve ourselves in all charitable work regardless of religion to develop our country," explained Grant.
Commenting on the matter General duties officer for Rumphi prison, Inspector Mazon Dama expressed satisfaction with the gesture.
