The gesture which is in fulfilment of the government’s new policy direction on the efficient utilization of the three percent disability component of the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF), is intended to economically empower disabled persons to fend for themselves.

The items include deep freezers, sewing machines and farm inputs for persons who desired to venture into farming.

During the presentation at Ave Dakpa, the Akatsi North District Chief Executive, Dr Prince Sodoke Amuzu urged the beneficiaries to look beyond their disabilities and commit to the course of economic independence by pursuing their intended businesses with the support items.

He reiterated the Assembly’s commitment to their welfare and urged them to take advantage of the government’s intervention to improve their livelihoods.

Receiving the items, the Chairman of Akatsi North District Disability Management Committee, Godwin Gordon Gomado commended the Assembly for the support and pledged on behalf of the beneficiaries to use the support package for the intended purpose.
