There was joy in Julius Village in the area of Traditional Authority T/A Kaledzera in Phalombe where villagers turned up to witness the donation of a wheel chair to a 14 year old boy Julianono Mwisowa who has been for the past 14 years struggling to get an assistive device.
FEDOMA decided to Donate the wheel chair to Mwisowa after it received a call from Emily Nthenda who works in the area as a volunteer as she reported the mobility challenges the boy encountered as for example, he was failing to go to school due to luck of an assistive device.
Speaking at the function, Group Village Head Julius commended FEDOMA for the timely gesture saying the boy will be attending classes as mobility challenge will be the thing of the past as his parents were used to carry him at the back.
“I would like to extend my sincerely gratitude to FEDOMA for coming in to assist since we had no way to go for a help. I have been witnessing with my own necked eyes Several organizations have been coming in this village with their promises to assist the family with the wheal chair but nothing showed up and it is only FEDOMA that has relieved the burden we had,” he said.
In his remarks, Lyson Mapanga who handed over the wheel chair on behalf of FEDOMA said the wheel chair has been sourced with an aim to prioritize the education for the boy and he was quick to plead with his guardians to use the wheel chair for sending the boy to school.
“We shall be happy at FEDOMA when we will see the boy going to school as it stands that education is the paramount tool transforming one’s future. I therefore make an appeal to you parents try as much as possible to send the boy to school since the device will ease his mobility challenges,” said Mapanga.
