A woman living with disability and her son who appeared on ZBC TV news recently appealing for assistance have received a donation of a wheelchair from a well wisher.
The plight of the woman, Letty Kuichemera who appealed for help for her son, Anywhere Kuichemera, changed for the better this Saturday (yesterday) when a local non-governmental organisation, Greenlight International Trust assisted her with a wheelchair and other goodies.
Anywhere never had a wheelchair and has been crawling for the past 17 years, making his life difficult.
The boy could not hide his joy upon receiving the wheelchair.
“Ndinonzwa kufara kuwana rubatsiro rwewheelchair, zvekuti ikozvino ndave kukwanisa kuitawo zvandange ndichishuvira (I am extremely excited for this assistance I never had a wheelchair before and now I can be able to fulfill some of my wishes),” he said.
His mother was equally happy saying the burden she had been carrying all the years has now been lessened as her son can now do some things on his own.
“Ndinotenda chose nekubatsira kwamaita Anywhere vanangu, zvanga zvichinetsa kuti rubatsiro ndoruwanepi (I thank you very much for assisting my son with the wheelchair I never thought I would ever get assistance),” said Letty.
The Greenlight International Trust Programmes Manager Julian Mtukudzi said they feel honoured to make such donations to disadvantaged members of the society.
“Tinovimba mukomana uyu achabatsirikana zvikuru uye achakwanisa kubatsira amai vake pane zvimwe zvaanga achitadza kuita asina wheelchair (We hope this boy will be able to do some of the things which were not possible since he had no wheelchair and also help his mother with some duties),” she said.
The organisation that has been in charity work since 2005, also donated diapers for 9 year old Brendon Chihuri of Warren Park in Harare, who is also living with disability.
