Atwima-Nwabiagya supports people with disability

The Atwima-Nwabiagya District Assembly has made available an amount of GH¢24,000.00 to support the livelihood of people with physical disability in the area.

It was disbursed to 69 people – to set them up in businesses and become economically self-dependent.

Nana Asare Bediako, the District Chief Executive (DCE), said the money represented their two per cent mandatory share of the second and third quarter allocation of the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF).

He advised the beneficiaries to ensure the judicious use of the money to enable them to fend for themselves and their families.

Mrs Rosemond Gyampoh, the District Director of the Department of Social Welfare, said they would make sure that there is equity and that none of the physically challenged would be denied his or her share of the fund.

Mr Emmanuel Opoku, the District Chairman of the Disabled Association, thanked the government and the assembly for the assistance.
