Caritas Kasama has handed over food items to beneficiaries from four villages of Zambia’s Mungwi District in the Archdiocese of Kasama.

Diocesan parishes donate to flood victims

Among the items Caritas Kasama donated were bags of maize, cooking oil, packets of sugar, salt and assorted clothing. Speaking at the handover ceremony in Chifulo village, Director of Caritas Kasama, Father Leonard Kalyoti, explained that last year (2020), the Archbishop of Kasama, Ignatius Chama, appealed to the Christian faithful in the Archdiocese to donate, whatever the could, towards those affected by the floods.

Grateful to parish priests and parishioners

Father Kalyoti has since expressed gratitude to parish priests and the Catholic faithful of the Archdiocese of Kasama for their generosity towards the noble diocesan cause.

At the handover ceremony, Parish Priest of Mediatrix of All Graces, Malole Parish, Father Edward Mutale, thanked Archbishop Chama and Caritas Kasama for coming to the aid of the people. Father Mutale reminded beneficiaries that the foods donated were meant to cushion them as they await the next harvest season.

A Diocesan Bag of Solidarity Campaign

Meanwhile, Caritas Kasama has launched a diocesan campaign known as the Bag of Solidarity Campaign. The idea is to collect donations that would then be channelled towards the Archdiocese of Kasama’s vulnerable communities.
