North Bahr el Ghazal provides food aid to people with disabilities.
PWDs in Aweil, North Bahr el Ghazal state, South Sudan, said they got relief food from the state Relief and Rehabilitation Commission (RRC) and the ministry of women, children, and social development on Friday.
The PWD union’s Secretary-General, Abraham Thuou, explained in a Radio Tamazuj report seen by NCMP that 50 sacks of rice had been delivered.
“The reason we’re here is to distribute the rice that the government has given us, despite the fact that it’s tiny; it makes sense in our lives.
We are grateful to the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission, as well as the Ministry of Gender, Child, and Social Development, for their excellent coordination in assisting handicapped members.” Thuou said.
Tereza Abuk Kuch, one of the recipients, said, “The state government, via the ministry of women, child, and social development, has issued around 50 bags of rice, which we have already distributed.
We are overjoyed because everyone will prepare adequate food for their children.”
Anguei Majok Aguer, another recipient, stated: “We applaud our government for its assistance and once again request that it continue to assist the crippled, visually impaired, and deaf.”
Last Monday, the RRC stated that it had received food help from the Chinese government through the national government in Juba for disadvantaged people and organizations.
