“We reaffirm our commitment to building a world where people with disabilities are afforded equal opportunities, independence and respect they deserve,” said the Deputy Governor.
Mrs Tuwei said the county will partner with stakeholders to ensure all PLWDs are reached with free medical checkups and provided with assistive devices.
“For the success of the day to celebrate the PLWD’s, we appreciate the partnership with Chepsoo/White Crescent Medical Center, EPK, Chepkumia Tea Factory, Lessos Dairies, Kenya Society For The Blind and Bethany Kits among others,” said Tuwei.
