A COUPLE has donated a plot of land (70 by 1000) to a group of blind musicians (Royal Sparrows) who participated in TV3’s reality gospel show, ‘Celebration’ and came as runners-up.
The couple, Mr and Mrs Eric Abrah- who are into evangelism – said the donation was a token of their appreciation for the marvelous display by people with such disability and also to help them build musical centre, offices and accommodation for members of the group.
In addition to that, they hosted the group to a buffet dinner at their residence at Bortianor and registered 50 disabled people for the National Health Insurance (NHIS) in Accra.
Making the donation at a colourful event, the coupled said they were touched by the manner in which the disabled people distinguished themselves at the reality show, adding that ‘with much support, the group can do wonders.’
He called on other philanthropists to come and help the group so that they could earn a better living for themselves and their families without being dependent on the society.
The leader of the group, Charles Oppong, was very grateful to the couple and asked other philanthropists as well as the government to emulate the good example of Mr and Mrs Abrah.
He indicated that in putting up their own offices and music centre, they would need the assistance of the government and other philanthropists
“at the moment some of us are furthering our education at the Okuapemman Senior High School and the University of Cape Coast and therefore need great assistance.”
According to the leader, “We don’t want to be dependent on the society but with our talents we need societal support to be fully integrated into the society.”
He also entreated the government to actualise the Disability Act to help people with disability in the country.
