Ng’ombe : The time is now.

CSQ  has started the campaign in the city of Blantyre and in February the organisation will be moving to other districts in the country in order to spread the message to all women.

“We are ready for the campaign all we want is that women should be open and cooperate with us for the campaign to be a success,” said Ng’ombe.

He continued by asking companies, institutions, and different offices in the Blantyre city to give the organisation space to test their employees.

“For the test all we ask from the interested institutions is a place at their office so that we can conduct the test freely without any disturbances,” he added.

He finally asked women in the country to take part in the campaign for their health status and safety of their lives.
