The Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) last week Thursday drilled members of Mchinji District Executive Committee (DEC) on issues to do with disabilities as part of its awareness drive under a three-month pilot project on mainstreaming disability rights with financial support from the Atlas-alliansen of Norway through the Norwegian Church Aid (NCA).
