Bishop Malasa Drums Support for Polio Vaccine
Bishop Brighton Malasa has called upon all women to vaccinate their children against Polio, and Covid-19 which he said have far reaching consequences to human life.
Malasa spoke this yesterday when he addressed Anglican women who were celebrating the solemn annunciation by angel Gabriel to mother Mary about the birth of Jesus Christ.
"This day is a call to repentance, peace and unity, but also to pray for our environment and the afflicted as Jesus did when he saw human beings with all their needs - biophysiological, social cultural, spiritual as part of a whole," said Malasa.
"Jesus was always willing to help and we too must be able to preach and teach out to others. Not only that but preserve our environment.
"Take care of the environment. Do not cut trees instead use other alternatives like chitetezo mbaula. Do not buy thin plastics just use baskets. All these floods are there because we have destroyed the ozone layer," said Malasa.
Anglican Mothers Union President Mary Makande says she will take the message to women to embrace government and the Bishop's plea to get their children to vaccination facilities to have a healthy generation and a lifestyle free of diseases.
The Diocese of upper shire has since cheered and donated assorted food stuffs to Balaka District Hospital to the cheerfulness of patients.
