The government of Ghana through its social intervention policy guidelines established the disability fund which is 3% of the district common fund to support, protect and enhance the socio-economic lives of persons living with disabilities.
In view of this, the Pru East District Assembly block on Friday, 12th August, 2022 at the forecourt of the Assembly presented deep freezers, fufu processing machines, provisions and cash to some Persons Living with Disabilities (PWDs) in the District. The beneficiaries included both males and females.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the District Chief Executive, Hon. Alhaji Adams Abdullai said the items and other cash support to the beneficiaries were to economically empower them to become financially and socially independent.
This would enable them to support their families and also contribute their quota to the national development as they stay off the streets from begging for arms. He entreated beneficiaries to put into good use whatever support they have received in order to achieve the good purpose for which the fund was established by government.
