Church Hailed For Role In Development

The Nzara County authorities have commended the church for its immense contribution to development in the area.

Nzara County Commissioner Elia Richard Box said the Episcopal Church of Sudan (ECS) has supported a number of development initiatives including education and health sectors as well as women development projects.

He said these when he received visiting  donors from the United Kingdom, Duncan Calam and Claudia Calam, who have been offering assistance to Nzara County through the church.

Mr Calam has been supporting Nzara ECS Nursery and Primary School besides initiating a micro-finance scheme for women in the area.

Calam who has invested in travel, manufacturing and computer businesses in the UK intends to support the revamping of the Nzara Agro-Complex.

Meanwhile, work on the Mamenze water project is set to kick off soon.

The Tombura County Commissioner Charles Babiro on Tuesday met with the county water and sanitation officer and discussed ways of developing the Mamenze water spring to enable the local community access clean water.

He said the initiative will address the acute water shortage in the County, adding that boreholes often end up being dysfunctional after some time while the spring is a natural source that requires minimal maintenance.

The Commissioner added that the project will be administered by the rural water departments in the county, adding that volunteers will be trained to take care of the water source.
