A delegation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints led by their elder from Salt Lake City Utah, USA, Mr Neil Andersen, says their church is committed to provide machinery and equipment to improve Zimbabwe’s health delivery system in the country.
Mr Andersen was briefing journalists after meeting with Vice President Mohadi in Harare this Wednesday morning.
Religious tolerance is a thriving principle in Zimbabwe that has seen churches work side by side with government in the provision of social services through construction of schools, hospitals and taking care of the needy.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has also been working in the country in the provision of clean drinking water in some suburbs of Harare like Budiriro, Mufakose, Epworth and other areas like Goromonzi, and in parts of Muzarabani.
It was also involved with the Ministry of Health in an immunisation programme and is now looking at a new phase of friendship and cooperation where it will build the 4th temple of their religion in Zimbabwe.
Vice President Mohadi said Zimbabwe welcomes church support in development programmes and expressed willingness to work with the church.
The Latter Day Saints leader’s delegation included the International Director Public Affairs Africa South-East Area Ellis Myandu, Elder Joseph Sitati Africa South East presidency and others.
