Angola: MP Urges Faithful to Help Most Disadvantaged People

Luanda — The chairperson of the 10th Commission of the National Assembly (Parliament), Genoveva Lino, on Saturday here urged devotees of the Church of the Divine Word and Power in (IPPDA) to help the needy, in order to enable the existence of harmony among brothers.

The MP, who was speaking at a thanksgiving mass allusive to the first founding anniversary of the women organisation of IPPDA, advised the faithful to be compassionate towards others, mainly the neediest.

Genoveva Lino stressed the need for devotees to be more compassionate towards the sick "through actions of charity, care and love".

At the occasion, she considered as negative the attitude taken up by some families, characterised by the abandonment of their parents at homes for the elderly, as well as the ill-treatment, recorded at some homes, against the elderly.
