The Third World Disablities

It was two years ago when, two dissabled gentlemen fight for a bicycle. There was a boy in our community who made arrangements with their church organization and donated ten bicycles for dissabled people in the community. The issuing venue was organized, all the dissabled people were summoned to avail themselves at 9.00 am. Munongo primary school. At exertly 8.30 am the venue was populated with several people including the beneficiaries. The issuing procedure resumed well and run smoothly upto where one bicycle left an issued. At about 11:00 Egesa and Odwory arrived at the same time and even the sponsors discovered them to be the most needy dissabled people. The fight arose between them over one bicycle left and it was an extra ordinary show for the people. They separated them and concluded that Odwory to be given the bicycle because he was having one leg after the another being cut off due to cancer infection 5 years ago. Eggpsa left the venue very sad and was promised to be given and soon but upto now he has not managed to get one. Those who benefited some are not functioning due to lack of maintenance. The dissabled people in the community are the most disadvantaged people because they need special care it bicycles,Financial support, shelter, education , medication and other basic needs deemed necessary.
