REPUBLICAN First Lady Esther Lungu has encouraged the Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA) to continue improving the health and education standards of the citizenry through their universities, schools and health facilities.
Mrs. Lungu said it was worth noting that the SDA Church was a very organised in its endeavours to serve the community, a situation government and the nation appreciated.
Mrs. Lungu was speaking when the Seventh-Day Adventist-Youth Department adopted the children’s ward at Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital as part of the Global Youth Day in which the youths globally come together to impact society by touching lives both physically and spiritually.
“The invaluable services rendered to the vulnerable services to the vulnerable and under-privileged through the efforts of the Dorcas Society, the Adventist Men’s Organization (AMO), and the energetic Adventist Youth Society, to mention but a few have brought relief to those hat need a helping hand in our nation,” she said.
The First lady said young people in the SDA Church had denied themselves pleasures of the world to help the needy.
“I’m pleased to note that the Adventist youth movement in Zambia had joined the nation by being practical as we celebrate Global Youth Day.
Meanwhile, Woodlands Conference President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church Dr. Daniel Chuunga said the church was committed to cooperating with government in providing proper health care to Zambians.
