Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic back in 2020, reports about some groups holding prayer gatherings contrary to the government’s directives have been commonplace.
It has also been reported that there are people in society with some kind of beliefs that they can’t take vaccine, nor respect guidelines to fight the pandemic.
In response to this, church leaders, gospel artistes and journalists under a union called “All Gospel Today” have joined the Ministry of Health and Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC), to raise their voices calling upon the public, especially Christians to tighten Covid-19 preventive measures.
Church leaders clarify that taking COVID-19 vaccine is not lack of trust in God; but a symbol of love and protection for the people of God.
Messages in this campaign focus on calling the public to wear facemasks properly, keep physical distance, and wash hands very often.
All Gospel Today (AGT) was founded in 2013, and it brings together local gospel personalities in Rwanda and in Diaspora with the common goal of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world.
The group is made up of church leaders, artistes, representatives of renowned worship teams, producers and gospel journalists.
The drive which was launched on August 11 is titled “#Sindohoka.”
