When church officials in Myanmar called for volunteers to help frontline health workers, young people did not hesitate to come forward and offer their time and energy.
Dozens of youths from various denominations have signed up for the program as part of the Church’s response in the nation’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
Despite the spread of the deadly virus and discrimination against health workers for fear of being infected, Christian youths are happy to have had the call to contribute their services.
On April 27, the Myanmar Council of Churches (MCC) established a volunteer team to help in the containment and treatment of Covid-19.
