The event which took effect at the forecourt of the District Assembly was to elevate PWDs from extreme hardship or burden.
The District Chief Executive (DCE) Madam Rebecca Yeboah, who on behalf of the Assembly and the Department of Social Welfare and Community Development did the presentation, noted that the government intends to sustain such support programmes to mitigate the vulnerability PWDs face in society to improve their livelihood as part of other plans.
She therefore admonished them to desist from complaining of not having jobs but rather acknowledge the support given by the government and put them to worthy use to better their lives.
The DCE advised them to be ambitious, steadfast and patient to grow their business successfully to be able to cater for their family members.
Madam Yeboah also encouraged them to save with the banks to ensure better security for their livelihood and for other benefits as well.
