Corps member donates 40 wheelchairs to handicaps in Katsina

By Editor

A Corps member, Jurdimma Douglas Damina has donated 40 wheelchairs to handicapped persons in Daura Local Government Area of Katsina State as part of his personal Community Development Service to his  host community,  

The Corps member said he was motivated by the passion he to impact positively on the less privileged he will come across

Douglas disclosed that he was touched as he sees many of the physically challenged  people passing by his house where he stays  along the township road in Daura on daily bases.

He further explained that he was particularly moved by one disabled old man who was always passing using a wheelchair made of wood
He said that the wheelchair was  not moving freely  on its own but it has to be pushed using physical strength and that the son of the man pushes the wheelchair and each time they were  passing with that struggle  he felt pity and had  compassion on them

Douglas said he  never believed he can execute the project until he met  with the NGO known as Beautiful Gate Handicapped People Center of  Nigeria  located in Jos plateau State  who accepted to sponsor the project

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the State Coordinator NYSC katsina State, Hajiya Muhammad Aisha called on the host community to continue to encourage corps members serving in their domain to carry out more developmental community oriented projects in their area,
noting that no corps member will carry away any project executed as it belongs to the community.

 Aisha who was represented by the Assistant Director Planning and Research, Alhaji Umar Ibrahim commended the Corps member for the initiative.

The Emir of Daura, Alhaji (Dr ) Umar Faruk Umar was among the Dignitaries that grace the occasion.
