Masari’s wife endows the poor in Daura

WIFE of Katsina State Governor, Zakiya Aminu Masari, in collaboration with Bruder Highlife Foundation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), has donated 80 hand-driven tricycles to physically challenged people in 12 local government areas located in Daura Senatorial zone of the state yesterday.

While presenting the tricycles to the beneficiaries, she lamented the level of hardship being experienced by people with disabilities, particularly those living in rural communities.

She said: “The gesture is championed through my pet project Women Youths and Children Improvement Support Initiative, with the aim of transforming and ameliorating the plights of the vulnerable people, especially the physically challenged.

“It is my desire to transform and enhance society through empowerment and touching the lives of the most vulnerable class. I sincerely hope that this class will one day serve as role models, by making positive impact and meaningful contributions to societal development.

“It is my belief that the mobility carts (tricycles) would help the beneficiaries to move around, discover their environment as well as find means of livelihood like any other person:”
