The Sene East District Assembly, through the Department of Social Welfare and Community Development, has disbursed the 3% share of the Common Fund meant for People Living With Disabilities (PWD).
The disbursement is in the form of the distribution of corn grinding machines, sewing machines, deep freezers, wheelchairs, and cash.
The District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. G.J. Gyimah, who, on behalf of the Assembly and the Department of Social Welfare And Community Development, did the presentation, noted that the government intended to sustain such support programmes to mitigate the vulnerability PWDs face in society to improve their livelihoods.
He asked them to desist from complaining of not getting jobs, but rather acknowledge the support given by the government and put them to worthy use to better their lives.
The beneficiaries were advised to be ambitious, steadfast, and patient to grow their businesses successfully to be able to cater for their families.
Mr. Majise Zack, Sene East District Director of Social Welfare snd Community Development, said that his outfit would monitor them to make sure all the disbursed items were put to good use, to help improve their standard of living.
Some of the beneficiaries expressed their gratitude to the government and the Sene East District Assembly.
