Caluquembe — The minister of Former Combatants, Kundy Paihama, last Sunday in Caluquembe locality, southern Huila Province, said that the Evangelic Sinodal Church of Angola (IESA) has been a fundamental partner of the government in resolving several social problems in the communities.

The minister revealed that the church has a reference hospital in Caluquembe Municipality, which has helped people from different parts of the country.
