Issues addressed at the gathering included the role of the church in fighting poverty, women in poverty, with a variety of issues including challenges faced by women. Speakers at the event, Magdeline Mabuse and Vanqa, informed the gathering that AWF, after conducting a study, engaged in an outreach programme, aimed at addressing issues of poverty, violence, and disease amongst others.
