Blantyre, 11 July, 2022 / 10:20 am (ACI Africa).
Staff at Tuntufye FM, a Catholic radio station of the Malawi’s Diocese of Karonga have received transport means to facilitate their access to remote Parishes of the Catholic Diocese in their sourcing of information from the people of God.
In a Thursday, July 7 report, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) Germany announced that it had made the donation, noting that staff at the radio station had previously found it challenging to reach all the Parishes of the Diocese owing to lack of proper means of transport and rough terrain.
The Catholic charity has reported that it had received the radio’s request for a vehicle that could cope with the local road conditions.
“After all, the broadcasts should be able to be transmitted not only from the seat of the station itself, but from the entire diocese,” ACN Germany has reported.
“Due to the distances involved and the fact that roads are often difficult to pass, especially in the rainy season, contributions could only be broadcast from nearby parishes,” ACN Germany has reported in reference to Tuntufye FM radio station.
