Persons Living with Disabilities (PLWDs) in Migori County have received donations distributed by the National Fund for the Disabled of Kenya (NFDK).
According to Kenya News Agency, Assistant Director for NFDK Mr. Isaac Aliya oversaw the distribution of the income-generating equipment to people living with disabilities in Nyatike Sub-County.
Aliya advised the 13 beneficiaries to make good use of the farm tools, barber tool kits, leatherwork tool kits, and plough yoke they had received to help them earn a decent living.
He also urged the beneficiaries to resist the temptation of selling the donated equipment because it would only add to the miseries that they were already facing.
The NFDK official also urged the beneficiaries to maintain the donated equipment, so that it would last and serve them well.
“I want to politely ask those that have benefited today not to apply again for the same support in order to give a chance to those that did not get it,” Aliya said.
Aliya added that those that intended to apply for the support from the NFDK should apply for the items based on their background needs and training to ensure that they benefit fully from those donations.
Deputy Commissioner for Nyatike Sub County Mr. Paul Lagat appreciated the NFDK officials for the godly gesture toward supporting people with disabilities.
The administrator said that disability was not inability and called upon the disabled people to work hard instead of relying on handouts for survival.
The NFDK donation kitty aims at helping disabled persons with endowments worth Sh60 million across the nation.
