TO ALL THE UPCSA MINISTERS (RSA)
This is a follow up to the previous correspondence on the same matter. We have just came out of a virtual SACC church leaders’ meeting. The SACC, in collaboration with government and other organisations, is in a campaign to provide relief to those who found themselves out of income, due to COVID-19 disruptions. In that correspondence, the formation of Local Ecumenical Action Networks (LEAN) was emphasised. If you belong to an ecumenical structure in your area that can establish a LEAN and provide this relief, please submit your name and contact number (with WhatsApp) to Rev L Mpetsheni at firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp 0731383791. Your structure (could be a fraternal or any relationship of ministers in the area), which will be LEAN for this purpose, should be able to:
1. Identify people who were robbed of their income because of COVID-19 (e.g. vendors, hawkers, drivers, etc).
2. Link with the suppliers and coordinators at national level.
3. Distribute relief to the people (relief could be in the form of food and/or vouchers).
Please supply this information on Wednesday 8th April 2020 before 12:00, as I will need to forward the same to the SACC head office. This is time for us to show compassion and social gospel imperative to those in need.
