Fifty disabled people benefiting from SEM project in Wau, southern Sudan

From SRS - Sudan Radio Service, December 3, 2009:
(Wau) – The Sudan Evangelical Mission in Western Bahr el-Ghazal state has donated twenty-one tricycles for disabled people in the state.

The SEM program coordinator, Timothy Kessang, explained to SRS who would be receiving the tricycles.

[Timothy Kessang]: “Disability being the mandate of SEM, we are planning to distribute tricycles to people with disabilities and our priority this time will be going to children who are in schools and universities. That is our major concern at the moment. We also have other mobility aids which are coming and we also wish to distribute them in Way county.

Kessang added that since they had started the project in Western Bahr el-Ghazal they have seen an improvement in the lives of the disabled in the state.

[Timothy Kessang]: “We are proud of this because since we started our program in WBG you can see a lot of changes and you go to the markets and you can find those beneficiaries that we helped doing well in their businesses. This illustrates that it doesn’t mean that a disabled person is not able.”

Fifty disabled people are benefiting from the SEM project in Wau.
