He said the church had continued to exercise the Vision 2016 pillar of a compassionate, just and caring nation by reaching out to the nation in various charitable deeds.

Mr De Graaff said the nation and God acknowledge the good that the church was doing and encouraged them to always give from the heart saying that gave fulfillment and satisfaction.

Roman Catholic's St Anne's Vicariate of Francistown which included Ghanzi District and Kgalagadi had in the past donated automatic wheelchairs in Letlhakane as well as adopt a child whom the church was taking care of.

The solidarity of women in prayer also donated in Bobonong and Masunga.

He commended them for their good deed of adopting the child, whom they explained they took while in Standard IV and now in Standard VII.

Mr De Graaf said parents should be responsibile for their children and not leave everything to the church, schools or government.

He said parents should play a role in the upbringing of their children.

In Ghanzi, they donated an ablution to the family of Gabampatle Letlhaku to the value of P27 000 and 100 blankets to the needy families as well as food hampers.
