Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has appealed to his members and followers across the world to join him in raising funds meant to support disaster victims in Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
The three countries have been hard-hit by Cyclone Idai and, so far, about 1000 are feared dead, thousands more missing and over 2 million people displaced.
Said Prophet Bushiri in message monitored on Prophetic Channel on Saturday: “We have already done a lot to reach out to disaster victims as I had directed last Sunday. But we need to do more. So I want everyone watching me now to join me in this cause.
“We need to raise more funds and, starting Tuesday, our team will be in Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique to support our brothers and sisters,” he said.
The ECG leader has since set up a team to coordinate and manage these relief efforts.
Prophet Bushiri is no stranger to supporting disadvantaged people. Just a week ago, he was in Alexandra, Johannesburg, where he donated relief items amounting to R400 000 for fire victims in the area.
