The disability sector continues  basking in the glory as The Citizens Foundation in conjunction with the K Motors organised Christmas Lunch-on for persons with disabilities around Blantyre.

Speaking at the Lunch-on held at Robins Park on December 23, Rodwell Lumbe from The Citizen Foundation said it is their wish to bring humanitarian support to the needy.

"We started organising events like this one last year and this year, we thought it wise to reach out to persons with various types of disabilities  here in Blantyre. We are very grateful to dine with you here and this gesture  signifies the love we have  towards persons with disabilities",  he said.

He added, it dawn on them to mobilize persons with disabilities to celebrate Christmas in a special way as   persons with disabilities lack opportunities to come together and share joy.

Speaking briefly on behalf of persons with disabilities, Juliana Mwase, a renowned disability activist  commended The Citizen Foundation and K Motors for the continued support towards the marginalized groups but she was quick to ask organisers to continue doing the commended job towards persons with disabilities 

"What you have done today will go along way in the history of this nation but you should not stop here  rather continue helping the needy with your humanitarian support", said Mwase.

Various youths with disabilities performed a number of activities to spice up the event as part of displaying their joy.

 K Motors and The Citizen Foundation provided buses to ferry persons with disabilities to their designated locations and about 800 persons with disabilities came to patronise the event.
