God’s Temple Ministries donates food and non-food items to patients at the Thyolo District Hospital

By Burnett Munthali

The Blantyre-based God’s Temple Ministry has today donated food and non-food items to patients at the Thyolo District Hospital, valued at K1.2 million.

The ministry’s leader, Apostle James Aaron, said this is to inspire God’s love of giving , healing, and saving sinful mankind, according to John 3:16.

The items include maize flour, salt, relish, soap, and baby nappies.

Representing the hospital’s matron, Josephine Nkhoma, who is the nursing officer for the paediatric ward, said the donation will help patients and guardians since some people in the district are facing hunger.

Good nutrition is an integral component of patient care. Not only does eating correctly provide substantial physical benefits, it also ensures psychological comfort throughout admission.

In a world often marked by challenges and uncertainties, the call to embody Christ’s love through acts of kindness stands as a beacon of hope and compassion for Christians. Rooted in the teachings of the Bible, the concept of kindness takes on a profound significance that goes beyond mere gestures.

The Bible is packed with verses emphasizing the importance of kindness and love in the Christian walk.

In Ephesians 4:32, believers are urged to “be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”

This sets the tone for understanding that our acts of kindness are an extension of the forgiveness and love we have received from God.

In a country faced with situated of food, devaluation of the Kwacha, high cost of basic needs and very low sources of income, it is difficult for millions of people to make ends meet. They struggled with hunger in the country. Even when there’s bumper harvest, there are hungry people in every community, rich and poor. In the face of such a daunting problem, we do well to remember the words of Mother Teresa, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”

Other sites in your community need you to help “feed just one.” Anyone can find a volunteer role that suits their skills and schedule, such as:

• Sort food, check expiration dates, and pack food for distribution

• Distribute food to families facing hunger

• Run a food drive at your business, organization, department, school, or civic group

• Assemble snack packs for local schools. The snacks will be used by teachers and/or school nurses when a student is in need of food.

• Urge your elected officials to protect SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), which helps put food on the table for many working families who struggle to get by.
