A group of retired volunteers called Hoptimisten based in Belgium have donated wheel chairs through the Office of the First Lady for disabled Sierra Leoneans leaving with disability across the country.
The donated items will greatly help the disabled community in the country who before have to crawl with their barefoot to fend for their living.
The Hoptimisten were able to collect the wheelchairs and other equipment’s across Belgium with the help of other philanthropists and hospitals in Brussels who with the little they have but can remembered the West Africa State.
Over a hundred of physical Challenged can benefit from the philanthropist gestures by the retired volunteers who have promised to do more when the needs arise.
One of the volunteers; who happen to be the Country Director of Socfin Agricultural Company was elated for the donation as he continued to manifest his love for Sierra Leoneans as and when necessary.
Gerben Haringsma paid for the transportation from Belgium to Sierra Leone as Mrs. Fatima Bio was in attendance to receive the much needed donation as part of her Hands Off our Girls campaign across the country.
Beneficiaries who spoke to this medium appreciate the gestures of Hoptimisten for remembering them during this time and also encouraged other philanthropist’s individuals to follow the good gestures of Hoptimisten.
‘We are thrilled for the donation,’ they said.
‘We say big thanks to the First Lady and the Country Director of the goodies, our brothers and sisters that have difficulties with their waking will breathe a sigh of relief as the wheelchairs will help them greatly for smooth movements.
One of the beneficiaries, Alimamy Sesay; was full of joy as he tearful heaped praise to the giver for a timely and appropriate donation.
However, the zest and exuberance of Mrs. Fatima Bio to lobby for Sierra Leoneans internationally should be applauded.
Her demeanour as First Lady is an exemplary one that continues to projects Sierra Leone internationally to the disbelief of several Sierra Leoneans and Non Sierra Leoneans just like the retired volunteers called Hoptimisten based in Belgium.
