The Mugodhi Apostolic Church in Zimbabwe says it is initiating church driven programmes which will assist its less-privileged members with food and education as part of its drive to compliment government welfare efforts.

In an effort to ensure less privileged members of the church a decent life, the Mugodhi Apostolic Church says the programme will avail food and school fees to its members using resources mobilised from its congregants.

Cde Peter Chigodora who was representing Hwedza South legislator Engineer Michael Madanha said the church has played a big role in looking after the less-privileged people through its various programmes.

Founded in 1948 by the late Bishop Mugodhi, the church is currently looking after more than 200 orphans and widows at its headquarters in Hwedza.

Cde Madanha also donated paint to be used to finish construction of the church’s headquarters.
