The Global Evangelical Church – GEC on Wednesday, March 17, 2021, launched a policy on Persons with Disabilities – PWDs to enhance their livelihood.
The church in partnership with the Centre for Employment for Persons with Disability – CEPD, Enlightening and Empowering Persons with Disability in Africa (EEPDA) and the Free Wheelchair Mission as part of the launch donated 550 chairs to PWDs in and outside the church.
Right Reverend Dr Setorwu Kwadzo Ofori, the Moderator of the church said the Disability Program of the church is its corporate social responsibility and to complement government’s effort in meeting human needs, alleviating suffering and poverty among PWDs.
The goal of Global Evangelical Church, the moderator mentioned is to facilitate the implementation of the policy and guide the inclusion, integration and support of members who were living with disabilities.
“We should not suppress the disabled for Jesus cared for all and did not discriminate”, he added.
Mr Alexander Kojo Tetteh, the Founder and Leader of CEPD, said the donation had been a dream-come-true to fight and empower the rights and self-esteem of PWDs
He congratulated GEC for taking the initiative of developing a disability policy, adding that PWDs would look forward to the policy’s fruitful implementation in enhancing PWDs’ spiritual and physical growth.
