A day well Spent with 87 With Disabled Children and Youth

A day well spent! We had estimate 40 children with disability and 30 parents/guardians will participate and over 60 children without disability will participate. We were overwhelmed by the turn up as 87 children and youth with disability were served, 100 children and youth without disability turned up, and over 300 parents/ adults turned. Munyaka Kambi Centre village – an isolated area that of late had become a gun battle zone between cattle rustlers and local community came a live as community members, youths, children and Persons With Disability all came together to receive information or assessment of disability. ‘ I have never seen such an event targeting the disabled since I settled here in 1969’ an old lady in attendance

Association of Physically Disabled Kenya doctors and Kapsara District Hospital Occupational Therapist offered services as long queue of children and youth waited patiently. Aged peole with disability also turned up.

The nominated counselor Mr. Manyonge was present to offer inspirational speech and hope to the disabled.He assured them that with determination and focus, all is possible. As a nominated counselor of Kitale Municipal council, he represents the interest of all the people with disability in the three districts of Kwanza, Trans-nzoia West and East.
