They have now called upon NGOs to support them with wheelchairs to ease their movement

Over 30 persons with disability in Otuboi Sub County Kaberamaido district are stranded without wheel chairs. 

According to some of them who spoke to Radio Rupiny on the condition of anonymity said they continue being threatened not to ask for help by some people in their district. They say they are suffering terribly with the return of rains. 

The disgruntled PWDs while talking to Radio Rupiny said even when they request for support, some people who do not wish them well have kept frustrating them. 

According to them, even when it comes to government programs like Operation Wealth Creation they are registered, when it comes to the time of receiving the inputs they are sidelined. 

They have now called upon NGOs to support them with wheelchairs to ease their movement. 

Meanwhile John Peter Orit the sub county chief Otuboi said he received a request from the PWDs and is working hard to ensure that they are supported with wheelchairs.
