Sightsavers Malawi has donated a 4×4 Ford Ranger vehicle to the Parents of Disabled Children Association of Malawi PODCAM to mitigate the transportation challenges the organization was encountering over the years.
Speaking after she received the donation, PODCAM Acting Executive Director Lyness Manduwa expressed gratitude for the timely donation saying the vehicle will ease mobility challenges at the organization.
“As an Acting Executive Director for PODCAM, we are very grateful for the donation and this will help us during our field visits as we usually travel time and again to appreciate challenges our members are experiencing. So for over the years we have been struggling, we seem to be relieved now in terms of transport and we thank Sightsavers,” said Manduwa.
In his turn Sightsavers Country Director to Malawi, Bright Chiwaula said the donation has been arrived at to enhance the strong relationship that has been there between Organizations of Persons with Disabilities in Malawi and the Sigthsavers itself.
“We are very happy as we are here donating this car to PODCAM and the paramount aim of donating this car is to cement the already existing relationship between us and PODICAM and it is our hope that we shall be working together for so long,” he said.
Sightsavers Malawi has been recently in good working relationship with Organizations of Persons with Disabilities OPDs in a number of interventions.
