Disability group seeks support to stage event


THE Evangelical Lutheran Church disability group in Mumeng, Morobe needs support to hold the celebrations for the International Disability Day on Friday.
The church disability programme in Mumeng will be held at the Sambio Primary School.
Coordinator Nera Bemalu said they were asking corporate organisations for sponsorship.
“We have written letters to organisations,” Bemalu said.
“Trukai Industries agreed to help us but others are yet to respond and we are waiting patiently for some good feedback.”
The support towards the celebration was for our good friends with disability
It would be the first time for the disability group to celebrate the event and show the community that they are people too and have a place in the society.
“They are church members and live in LLGs but there are no inclusive programmes for them in churches and communities,” Bemalu said.
Bemalu said churches had failed greatly in their mission work by ignoring the sick and suffering in church and community programmes.
