“We just want to encourage the people with disability that their disability does not mean inability and, therefore, should not stop them from going about their day-to-day activities,” she explained.

Ms. Gbeve revealed that one of the challenges of patients at the facility was the difficulty to access potable water, hence, the foundation’s gesture to them.

“Those on admission sometimes find it difficult to get good drinking water to take their medication with… and we know water is life, so as part of our initiative, we decided to give out fifty packs of bottled water to all persons on admission at the hospital.”
