VP’s Wife Tours 4 Counties To Meet Disabled

MONROVIA, March 10 (LINA) - Kartumu Y. Boakai, the wife of the Vice President,  has been touring Bong, Nimba and Grand Bassa counties, to meet people with disabilities that are under the umbrella of the Group of 77, a program under the Office of Vice President Joseph Boakai.

In the three Counties, she presented food items and non-food items to the disabled and reassured them that government believes they have a place in society, and can still contribute towards the advancement of the country.

Madam Boakai encouraged the disabled to rise above their condition and get involved in meaningful activities like anyone else.

She distributed rice, clothes, clutches, wheelchairs, toys, educational materials and household items made available by the Office of the Vice President and Samaritan Purse International respectively.

Madam Boakai cautioned them to cultivate a culture of respect for their leaders and muster the courage to prove those who believe that they are trouble-makers wrong.

As part of her programs to move the Group to another level, the Mrs. Boakai has constructed a modern resource training Center in Kakata, Margibi County, which is the first since the Group was started in 1977.

In Grand Bassa County, Superintendent Etweda Cooper pledged a parcel of land for the Group of 77 to construct its facilities in response to an appeal made by Madam Boakai.

Also in Bong County authorities had earlier made available a parcel of land to build a resource center.

In Nimba County, the disabled are engaged in animal husbandry, soap making as well as arts and crafts.

Meanwhile, the Superintendents of Grand Bassa and Bong Counties have pledged their support to the efforts of Madam Boakai to transform the lives of people with disabilities.
