The World Community Counselling Centre recently donated 30 wheelchairs to Princess Marina Hospital in Gaborone as part of its mandate to help strengthen the welfare of community members.
Speaking after the handover Pastor Justin Ngoma said giving a wheel chair to someone who is in need is to show them the existence of God in their life.
“There is also a need to complement government’s efforts and we hope the donation will go a long way in assisting the beneficiaries,’’ he said.
The wheelchairs were assembled by the youth at the centre which is a faith based organization operating from Tlokweng. It was founded by a group of Christians to make positive change in the lives of children and young people in need.
The organization has so far donated to various institutions and individuals in the country. Some of their beneficiaries include prisons which received television set, widows and widowers who received food stuffs and clothes and the youth who were awarded scholarships.
“Other people who are in need especially those in need of wheelchairs are free to visit our church and we will try our best to assist them,’’ said Ngoma.
