UK based businessman/preacher Uebert Angel has pledged US$1 million towards the fight against coronavirus in Zimbabwe by aiming to feed vulnerable families during the lockdown.
Action speaks louder than words. His pledge comes amid worldwide criticism of church leaders for asking congregants to pay offerings, seeds, tithes during this lockdown. However, some church leaders have come out explaining their actions.
In one of his online sermons this week Angel said “true religion is in helping people and during this global pandemic the church has a role to not only pray for people but also offer help.” Though he has been labeled controversial, his good works are traceable.
Through the Uebert Angel Foundation, their helping hand has been seen in many projects that help the needy. In January they paid school fees for a whole school for a year, a total of 797 students. In February again, they paid fees for 1026 students from a primary school in Masvingo.
The Foundation joins the likes of Strive Masiiwa whose helping hand is always seen where there is need especially in the health sector. He recently donated the much needed life saving ventilators to hospitals in Zimbabwe.
