Kiitan Foundation unveiled her Charity for the disabled outreach on the 16th of
November, 2022 for JONAPWD members (Joint National Association of Persons
with Disability) Egbedore LGA chapter at Awo. The program was facilitated by the
program manager and the office assistant. The objective of the program is to
identify with the disabled in the community and provide help through a need based
assessment. As a result of partnership and collaboration with well meaning
organizations, 5 wheelchairs were donated to the organization to support the
disabled outreach cause.
The program started at exactly 11:20am, with the members in attendance. The
chairman of the union in person of Mr. Abifarin Adesina introduced the
organization to the members and his past engagement with the organization during
the youth empowerment project held on April 30
th
, 2021 at Awo community hall.
After the chairman welcome address, the organization’s program manager re-
introduced the organization with emphasis on the good work and success stories
recorded in the state. The program manager also made it known that the
wheelchair would be given at no cost hence the selected beneficiaries are not
expected to pay any amount to either the organization or the union for the purpose
of the wheelchair. The program manager emphatically warned that the wheelchair
should not be sold for whatsoever reason as it is meant to be used by the recipient
and in the case of non usage, the wheelchair should be returned to the union to be
given to another needy member.
Afterwards, the 4 pre-selected beneficiaries from Ara, Iwoye and Iragberi
(Egbedore LGA) based on the level of disability and need were called out by the
chairman of the union for presentation and photographs. After the presentation,
Mrs. Ayofe Esther, one of the members appreciated the kind gesture and support of
the organization and said words of prayers for the organization. Also, Mr. Taiwo
(sign language interpreter) was called upon to appreciate the organization through
sign language. The presentation came to an end around 12:40pm and the
organization embarked on their journey for the presentation of the last wheelchair.
The organization moved from Awo to Ido osun, Egbedore LGA for the presentation
of the last (5th) wheelchair. The presentation was done separately because the
beneficiary, Mrs. Oyebowale is a stroke patient identified in Ido Osun community,
hence the need to present the wheelchair at her residence. During the course of
the presentation to the beneficiary, one of her care-givers appreciated the
organization for the immense show of love just as the shirts worn by the staff
depicts ‘give, love, pray’.
