He went on to say that they had decided to celebrate that way because they wanted those people, largely marginalised, to feel a part of the society, adding that the future was very promising for them and therefore should not feel left out because of their present conditions.

He assured all that his institution would always be there to render quality services to the people of Sierra Leone, especially the poor and needy, stressing that the orphans and disabled were their major target for this year’s social responsibility.

“This is just one of our own ways of giving back to the people what we collected from them,” he ended.

In his statement, head of the Cheshire Home, Dr. Dumbuya, began by thanking the Guaranty Trust Bank for thinking about them in this year’s celebration of Christmas. He told all that disability was not inability stressing that the biggest disability was with the mind and not because one was without their arms and legs.

Dr. Dumbuya furthered that the Cheshire Home was purely looking after children with disabilities, adding that it had produced a lot of successful people over the years and that he was one of those successful products of the home.

He therefore called on all well-meaning Sierra Leoneans to give their fullest support to the Cheshire Home so as to help improve on the lives of orphans and disabled in the country.

The occasion saw the distribution of learning materials, Christmas gifts and a serve-yourself-party amongst others. Similar activity was also organised for another set of disabled at the Prince of Wales Secondary School, west of the city.
