As the country is slowly relaxing Covid-19 regulations churches in Town Two are leaving nothing to chance and have vowed to combat the virus through public education.
Reverend Mxolisi Nyambadi of the United Methodist Church was among the church leaders who received masks and temperature gauges from Town Two garage owner Thami Gesha on Saturday.
Mr Nyambadi said he was pleased to receive such equipments for his congregation. “We are monitoring attendance in our church and this will our work much easier,” he said.
Apostle Julia Sirwayi of Combined Body of Christ International Movement said she was very happy to receive these as they would help her church to play an educational role in combating the disease.
“Yes we hear numbers are going down but we must work with government to fight this and Mr Gesha here is always helping the community where necessary,” she said.
Reverend Mbongweni Nobeqwa from Believers Centre urged congregants to cautious of the pandemic.
“This is not government’s fight alone, it’s our lives and we must appreciate any effort to lesson the virus,” he said.
Town Two community leader, Vuyani Mpetshe thanked Mr Gesha for his supportive role in the surrounding community and urged other businesses follow his example.
Mr Gesha said this was part of ploughing back to the community. “Look it’s not a big deal but what we could afford, we did. We always work with community structures to intervene where possible,” he added.
