“The aim is to touch the lives of the physically- challenged persons and include them in our various interventions; as members of the community, they too need the support and want their lives to be touched one way or the other, hence the donation.”

Abdulkadir explained that the items distributed included 165 tricycles wheelchairs, 10 regular wheelchairs, 30 walkers and 20 crutches to over 200 persons living with disabilities.

“Predated the flag off the gesture, names of the beneficiaries were submitted by the leadership of physically challenged persons’ groups across the 21 local government areas of the state.

“We had made conscious efforts to ensure that the beneficiaries of the donation are either schooling or willing to learn trade as some have already productively engaged in various businesses ,” he said.

The coordinator urged the beneficiaries to utilise the gesture for the purpose it was meant in order to move their lives forward.

Some of the beneficiaries who spoke, thanked the Khadimiyya and the sister organisation for the gesture, and assured that they would utilise the items for the purpose they were meant in order to be self – reliant and productive members of the society.
