Bodi (W/R), Sept. 10, GNA - The Sefwi Bodi District of the Western Region has presented MTN Trade Elements to Persons with Disability as part of the second phase of the support for such people in the district.

The items include MTN agents, SIM cards, tables, MTN branded umbrellas and the MTN souvenirs.

In addition, an amount has been loaded onto the E-transfer SIM for each beneficiary to kick start their businesses.

This past May, the Assembly presented assorted items like refrigerators, sewing machines to the first batch of Persons with Disability as part of the District Assembly Common fund.

Presenting the items, Mr Ignatius Akwasi Amankwah, the District Chief Executive of the area, urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the opportunity.

The DCE said that the era where money was given to Persons with Disability for them to use for domestic purposes and at the end expected more from the Assembly was going to be a thing of the past.

"The Assembly has now taken the steps to invest in you for your future and also make life comfortable for you, so that others who have not also gotten this opportunity will also benefit anytime the Common Fund due for Persons with Disability is ready," he said.
