Care for the poor is a mandatory Christian practice, Emmanuel Cardinal Dr. Wamala has said. “As Christians, we must be fully committed to helping vulnerable people, in particular the elderly, the sick and the homeless children. Our attitude to our needy brethren is one measure that God will use to take us to heaven,” Wamala said.

The party was organized by the Christians of Kansanga, in partnership with the Good Samaritan Association of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Kampala, which promotes acts of charity for the poor and disadvantaged people. The function attracted over 600 elderly and disabled persons, collected from the communities of Kansanga.

The Director of the Good Samaritans, Fr. Achilles Mayanja said that the function was organised to raise public awareness that needy people existed, right in their own communities.

The head of the laity of the parish, Peter Lusembo said that every person was a potential candidate for sickness, disability and old age, which was why it was important for every Christian to be concerned with the needs of the disadvantage people. Lusembo argued that the sick/disabled people were not useless, because they were still human beings, who could also pray for us.
