“This donation will see both the disabled and their guardians finding it easy to move around especially during this COVID-19 era. Some of the beneficiaries have been struggling with movement in their entire lives as they could not afford a wheelchair.”
Chikomba East has more than 2 000 disabled people while those with wheelchairs are around 200.
A Turkish embassy representative, Adam Wadi, said they brought the wheelchairs after realising the needy in the area.
“We visited this area and did our assessment only to find out that people living with disabilities were in dire need of wheelchairs.
“We have delivered some and our hope is to secure more in the future.
“We are also mulling to embark on a project to drill boreholes across the area to alleviate water problems as well as promoting the establishment of irrigation schemes for the benefit of villagers.”
