The Bongo District Assembly in the Upper East Region has disbursed GHC107,267 to Persons with Disabilities, PWDs.

The money will help beneficiaries in income generating activities, education, apprenticeship and medical care.

It forms part of the three percent allocation of the District Assembly Common Fund, meant for PWDs.

The Disability Common Fund is aimed at alleviating poverty among persons living with disabilities (PWDs), by support them with income generating activities as a means of economic empowerment.

The Fund provides educational support and helps build their capacities for the world of work.

The beneficiary PWDs in the Bongo District, numbering more than eighty, received sewing machines, deep-freezers among other items.

Others were given cheques valued between one and two thousand Ghana Cedis.

President of the Local Chapter of the Association, Clement Mba, commended President Akufo-Addo for increasing the allocation meant for the PWDs.

District Chief Executive of Bongo, Peter Ayinbisa Ayamga, charged the beneficiaries to use the resources judiciously to improve upon their livelihoods.

He disclosed that the assembly has disbursed more than 800 million Ghana Cedis to PWDs in the area from 2017 to 2020.

The Bongo District currently has more than four thousand people living with various forms of disabilities.
