Ho, July 13, GNA – Reach Out for the Children, (ROFAC), a Denmark based pro-poor interest charity, has presented assorted mobility gears to a number of People with Disabilities (PwDs) in Ho.
The donation was done through Voice-Ghana, a disability rights campaigning NGO based in Ho.
The items include wheel chairs, clutches with reflectors, ordinary elbow clutches and spare tyres.
Stella Adubah, ROFAC Ghana Coordinator told the Ghana News Agency that the items costing 700,000 dollars were procured with donations from some organisations and individuals in Denmark.
She said ROFAC, founded in 2009, had over the past seven years impacted poverty alleviation through supporting street children to go to school, adopting children’s homes as well as helping with books and learning materials and donating beds to hospital in rural areas.
Francis Asong, Director of Voice-Ghana said the items had come at the right time to ease the mobility of some people with disabilities who had been clamouring for support from Voice-Ghana.
Charles Nyante, Programme Coordinator of Voice-Ghana said the wheel chairs, were of various designs to suit amputees, people with cerebral palsy and those with movement difficulties in relation to ageing.
