Sawla Area Launches 2022 Environmental Care Campaign

The Sawla Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor David Amankwaa, launched the 2022 Environmental Care Campaign of the church at Sawla Central church auditorium last Tuesday.

The campaign is being held in partnership with the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District Assembly and other stakeholders in the district.

In a presentation at the launch ceremony, the Environmental Health Assistant for Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District, Mr. Lawrence Naalubetuore, shared with participants the deteriorating state of the environment in the Sawla community and its environs. 

He therefore advised participants to respect the environment by keeping it clean for habitation. 

Mr. Naalubetuore lamented the difficulty in enforcing environmental laws due to some influential members of society who always negotiate the release of culpable offenders arrested for their actions towards the environment.

He warned that until laws are enforced, the war against indiscipline could not be won.

He also entreated participants to be each other’s keeper on the cleanliness of the environment because any outbreak of disease due to bad environmental practices will affect each and every one.

In his address, Pastor Amankwaa said that God created the environment for humanity. It is therefore, incumbent that all people, particularly Christians, take responsiblity and take good care of it.

Reading from Genesis 1:30, he emphasised that “the environment God created was good; hence must be protected by God’s people because we are His stewards.”

Pastor Benjamin Addo-Boateng, the Coordinator for the Area Discipleship and Leadership Development Committee (ADLDC), outlined the action plan for the 2022 Environmental Care Campaign to be climaxed with clean-up exercises in the various zones in the Area.

In attendance were ministers, District Environmental Health officers, church officers and members in the Area.

The Environmental Care Campaign is one of the focal areas of the Vision 2023 of The Church of Pentecost, dubbed “Possessing the Nations” (Equipping the church to transforming every sphere of society with values and principles of the Kingdom of God).
