Summary short_text

Government, in partnership with the World Bank, has handed over twenty thousand wheelchairs to the Ghana Federation of Disabilities Organisations as part of ongoing interventions to improve their livelihoods and wellbeing.

Handing over the wheelchairs at a brief ceremony in Accra on Tuesday May 11, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, assisted by the Minister of Health, Hon Kwaku Agyeman Manu and Dr Anthony Seddoh, World Bank Country Lead for Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone, said the donation was further evidence of Government's renewed commitment to building a fair and inclusive society, which ensures that all citizens share in the country's wealth and prosperity, irrespective of their background.

Some of the initiatives undertaken since 2017 include the presentation in 2020 of Ghs4 million to two thousand disabled men and women entrepreneurs under the Presidential Empowerment for Male Entrepreneurs with Disability and the Presidential Empowerment for Women Entrepreneurs with Disability respectively; and the handing over of 10,000 hospital beds to the Minister for Health for distribution across the country.
