    Tease (E/R), Aug. 30, GNA – The Kwahu Afram
    Plains South District Assembly has presented start up kits worth GH¢166,000.00
    to over 50 Persons With Disabilities (PWD) to enable them establish sustainable
    businesses.

    Items presented to them included physical
    money, containers, outboard motors, brand new deep freezers, fridges, bee hive
    caves, wheel chairs, provisions, rubber nets, corn and cassava milling machine
    among others.

    At a short ceremony to present the items to
    the beneficiaries, Mr George Ofori, the District Chief Executive said the
    gesture was made possible with the support of the District Assembly Disability
    Fund Management Committee.

    He urged the beneficiaries to invest the money
    given them into productive ventures to help raise their standards of living.

    Mr Ofori cautioned the beneficiaries not to
    sell the logistics given to them.

    He said the selection of beneficiaries was
    very transparent and was guided by prescribed guidelines to arrive at the
    decision as to who should benefit out of the numerous applications that were
    received.

    He said one major requirement for the
    selection was that the applicant must of necessity be a disabled person and
    submitted an application.

    Mr Ofori said the purpose of the fund was to
    empower persons with disability economically to get them out of the street
    begging for alms which sometimes resulted in the loss of precious lives.

    The beneficiaries expressed their gratitude to
    the Assembly for considering them for the fund and promised to use it in ways
    that would benefit them and their dependents.
