Speaking during the signing ceremony of the memorandum of understanding with the Presidential Empowerment Initiative Fund (PEIF), Chairman of the pastors’ fellowship Reverend Ephraim Kambanja heaped praise on President Edgar Lungu for giving help to the poor through the Presidential Empowerment Initiative Fund.
Reverend Kambanja noted that the leadership of President Lungu is holistic in the way it responds to the deepest needs of the less privileged.
And (PEIF) National Coordinator Clement Tembo said that President Lungu has empowered the pastors with seven hundred and fifty thousand kwacha meant to identify beneficiaries in their churches in all the seven Constituencies in Lusaka.
Tembo has also said the beneficiaries once identified will be empowered with incubators, block making and cooking oil producing machines.
He has urged the church to remain united and ignore criticism that may come from some sections of society because of their move to support the President’s initiative of improving the welfare of the underprivileged entrepreneurs.
