[ACNS source: Church of the Province of West Africa] The Joint Anglican Diocesan Mothers’ Union in Ghana has called for total cancellation of debt owed by the developing countries. The Union pointed out that it was the surest way to help those countries to forge ahead and make some progress.
The Mothers’ Union made the appeal at an awareness campaign in Ghana where they paraded to stress the need for the cancellation of the crippling debt on the necks of Third World Countries.
The Union was unhappy that monies meant for development projects in developing countries were often used to settle debts. Earlier, the Union held its Diocesan Council meeting, which elected Mrs Christine Gwira as the new President to serve a two-year term.
The Mothers’ Union is a Christian organisation, which promotes the well being of families worldwide. It has over one million members in 65 Countries.
