The items range from deep freezers, kneading machines and hand sewing machines; for commercial purposes.

Madam Mariama Karley Amui, the Ablekuma Central Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) in an interview, said the government led by President Nana Akufo Addo was committed not to leave behind any section of the society in its development agenda, hence the support to the PWDs.

She urged the beneficiaries to put the items and the money given to them into good use to enhance their living standard and desisting from begging for alms on the streets, which pose danger to their lives.

“We are giving you other items apart from the money to support your businesses and to pay your schools fees and pray that you make good use of these supports,” she said.

The MCE added that the Assembly would monitor the use of the items and reiterated the commitment of the Assembly to the economic emancipation of PWDs.

Some of the beneficiaries who received the items express their gratitude to the Government and have assured that the items will be put into good use.
