UK based charity Focus on Disability (FoD) on Thursday, made a donation of a wheelchair to an Abuja school girl.
Mary Bala, a student of Government Secondary school Kuje-Abu who had been living with a disability in both legs since birth, showed great delight and said her new wheelchair will change her life and make it easier for her to get to school.
Mary and her mother who was also present at the presentation that took place at her school, thanked the founder of FoD Mr Abbey Paseda and his team for their generousity and kindness .
Before her new wheelchair was presented to her by FoD, Mary had been moving about with the aid of a makeshift mobility devise made out of old bicycle parts, metal sheets and other recycled bits.
Focus on Disability is a charitable organisation that has been concerned with the plight and welfare of people living with disabilities in Africa and supporting them with materials, medications and other resources to help make life easier for them.
