Ndove to help the disabled

FRANCISTOWN: Deputy Mayor of Francistown, Joyce Ndove is on her last lap of her term, and already she is making plans on how to actively help people with disabilities.

Ndove, a member of the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC), said she will not be contesting the coming elections. A mother with a disabled child, she said that there is a need for all to be committed and involved in helping the government to take care of the disabled in their communities.

Ndove explained that raising a child with disabilities is a challenge that requires everyone’s involvement.  He pleaded that it should not be the responsibility of the parents raising children with disabilities alone. She said most people with disabilities are faced and highly affected by poverty due to their condition as compared to normal people. She said it is because some of them are not able to go out and ask for government initiatives to empower themselves. She said that her mission is to help people with disabilities discover themselves and make them able to go out in public to seek help like other people.
