Over ten disabled people on Monday benefited from a kind gesture from the group All Pro consulting services.
The donation was presented to the beneficiaries through Ambassador Moses Owen Brown.
Presenting the items which includes: Wheel chairs, walkers and cross sticks Ambassador Brown noted that it was the group’s way of identifying with less fortunate people in society which he added are as well important to the Country.
He said he usually feel sad when he sees disabled people in the streets begging just to get ants meat to survive.
Moses speaking at the presentation ceremony thanked his friend T.J. Weh from the US who saw the need after his publication to assist the disabled people.
“I pity their conditions especially some of them were not born disable rather through accident and or unforseen circumstances” ,he added.
He wants national government to see the need to help address some of the challenges affecting the disabled community.
Moses indicated that he and his colleague Weh gesture was part of their own individual way of helping as well as contributing to the government’s pro-agenda and called on others to do same all in the Supreme interest of Liberia.
In brief remarks a representative of Mr. Weh in Liberia only identified as Emmanuel said the gesture is just the beginning of more to come.
He said their entity stands ready to buttress the government effort in whatever way possible and to at the same time is looking forward to sustainable growth of the CDC led government pro-poor agenda.
In a happy mood Samuel Sumo Dean from the disabled end thanked the group and Ambassador Brown for what he termed as timely donation to his people.
“We are so happy for the gesture and uttered that the items are very important to our daily life’s and movement as such they are essential to us” he added.
It can be recall in March of 2018 some members of the disable community stage a peaceful protest at the foreign ministry requesting the attention of President Weah in a move to help address some of their concerns.
Housing/shelter , health care, untold suffering, discrimination, neglect including abandonment from past governments have been some of the old age problems and challenges they have been living with over the years, this they added needs to be changed and addressed by the current regime.
