Luanshya, July 1, 2014, ZANIS–Government says it places priority in its partnership with religious organizations in providing the much needed social and economic development of the country.
And Safe Zambia Foundation Executive Director Pastor Andrew Kayekesi said the donation would act as a tool in easing the visitation of OVCs and people living with HIV and AIDS in Mpatamato community.
