Mr. Meshack Chemwor, the County Director of Social Services graced the occasion held at St. Agnes Catholic church, Ziwa. He encouraged the PLWDs to apply for the funds from the National Government to help them start businesses for their daily support.
“Cash transfer to the disabled is a function of the National Government, however, our governor saw it best to steer this intiative.” Clarified Director Chemwor.
“This is just the first phase, the second phase shall be effected mid-August,” He added
The beneficiaries thanked the County Government  for the mobility and recognition they have at the moment.
“We thank our Governor for remembering us!, do you know that we have disabled who are better than  normal people because of their hardwork” said one happy Daudi Tororei who also urged the County to increase the number of Social Workers so that all the People Living with Disabilities can be reached individually.
