My fundraiser for covid19 kits is ongoing but am not going to fold my hands and wait. This month I have been able to distribute 25 covid19 kits to 25 persons with disabilities comprising of face mask and sanitisers. Thanks to kind donations from LUMEF an organisation here in Cameroon. This activity also gave me the opportunity to sensitize members of households of persons with disabilities about some disability related issues.
It has also been s challenging activity considering that violence escalated during this last weeks of August in Bamenda due to the current sociopolitical crisis. There has been plenty of cross gun firing . Infact on one occassion i was on the floor for two and the half hours waiting for the mad gun firing to stop so i could go home. Then we were ask to walk with our hands raised up for about 2 hours to get toy house. I thank God he took me back home safely.
This initiative is not only about giving out covid19 kits. It gives me the opportunity to spend some quality time with them .it Also gives them the reassurance that they are being loved and cared for. Especially as we live in a society were there are so many myths surrounding persons with disabilities.
I already want you thank you for being that person who will show some love to at least one person with disability this month in your neighborhood. You could even continue my initiative by sacrificing and donating just a kit to them. It could be your child, sibling. Neighbor or someone in your church. God always loves and replenish a cheerful giver.
