October 30, 2020 (Thessherald)–Achai Wiir, a prominent South Sudanese businesswoman and philanthropist, has donated four three-wheeled motorcycles for people with disabilities in the capital, Juba.
Achai, who recently formed a charity organization, is known for dedicating her time and energy to caring for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in society in order to improve their living standards.
“Today, I simultaneously handed-over four (4) three-wheeled motorbikes to persons with disabilities at De Space Lounge and Restaurant in Juba.The handover was witnessed by a number of government officials and a few onlookers,” she noted.
“Today, I marked one month of donating wheelchairs to vulnerable South Sudanese persons with disabilities. Thanks to everyone who stood with me. Your positive comments encouraged me to continue with this initiative that I had undertaken for the love of my country,” she added.
On Tuesday, Mrs. Achai attracted public attention after lending a helping hand to a disabled person who always sells insignificant items along Ministries road, next to Dr. John Garang Mausoleum.
“As I continue with my initiative and that of the Foundation to support the most disadvantaged and disabled people of this great nation, my team and I today, donated a trike to a vulnerable man along Ministries road, next to Dr. John Garang Mausoleum.”
“As you can see, the disabled man is beating the odds by transacting his small profit-making business next to the road. He’s a true example of “disability is not inability”. I was touched and I offered to him funds to expand his business.”
“Minutes later as I was interacting with the disabled man, I was joined by my uncle who’s also the Minister of East Africa Parliamentary Affairs, Honorable Deng Alor. He spotted us as he was driving to his office and stopped-by to extend his helping hand to us.”
