Alimamy & Foday blessed with Gifts of Mobility Carts in Sierra Leone

“Here is a video of Alimamy receiving his new cart a few weeks ago. He comes from a very poor home and this cart means so much to him. We found him in a village called Rotifunk in Port Loko district. A second video records his speech of thanks.

“There is also a photo of carts being presented to a group of disabled people. The final photo is of Foday, one of our volunteers, who has won a free place at university under a little known provision of a Disability Act. We are funding his text books and personal costs. And of course the mobility cart is vital for his university life.

“We are now planning our next visits to remote villages searching for children and adults who cannot walk. We have four excellent Sierra Leone volunteers who carry out these searches for travel expenses only. Some journeys involve hiring a boat and traveling for two days to coastal villages only accessible by boat. Ibrahim tells me there are no carts available in Sierra Leone. I need to know when more are coming so that the volunteers do not raise false hopes amongst the disabled people they discover.

Good wishes

Kevin Curley, Chair
