LONG-maintained good work relationship between religious denominations and the government has saved many lives and support mankind both physically and spiritually.

 Arusha Regional Commissioner, David Ntibenda made the remarks yesterday at the occasion to receive 2,700 mosquito nets worth 21m/- donated by the Tanzania Assemblies of God church in Arusha.

The regional leader (Ntibenda) said the value of services rendered to the community by religious denominations could not be overstated and the government would always appreciate and support the initiative.

"We (government) are sincerely grateful for the donation of bed nets by the Assemblies of God Church in Tanzania. The bed nets will be distributed to both private and public health facilities as directed by the benefactor Ntibenda,” explained

Adding; “The support has been received at the right time as the government intensifies the fight against malaria.
 The disease continues to threaten many lives especially among children under five years old and expecting mothers,” he said

Speaking after handing over the bed nets, the Vice Bishop of Tanzania Assemblies of God Church in Tanzania, Bishop Magnus Mhiche said the church has offered the bed nets being part of celebrations to mark the 75th Jubilee since its establishment in the country.

The cleric said the church had provided 2,6oo nets to match the number of patient beds in the region and the beds are destined for both public and private health facilities.

"We are doing this countrywide, will go to every region and provide nets according to the number of beds, our pastors and believers will also donate blood to bridge the gap in hospitals’ blood banks, “ Mheche clarified

He said the slogan for the donation campaign is “God loves your body and soul, make a good relationship with Him”

Holy Scriptures argue us, he added, to love each other unconditionally for extended support to all human beings irrespective of one’s faith, color, gender or any other affiliation

Arusha Regional Medical Officer (RMO), Dr Frida Mokiti thanked the church for the support and promised that the received consignment would be distributed to the intended health facilities in the region.

"Many thanks to the TAG church for the support extended to us. Bed nets have proved to be effective mechanism to fight malaria," She concluded
