 THE Port Moresby General Hospital received 10 wheelchairs from the Kapi Foundation in appreciation of the work it is doing.

Brown Kapi encouraged the disabled community to show the world they can donate to those in need, thus, moving away from the practice of just receiving donations.

“Why can’t disabled people give to the able instead so the world can see the ability and humanity in us rather than be seen as an object of charity,” Kapi, the founding chairman, asked.

He thanked the Ward 3B staff for their hospitality when he was admitted there.

Most wards have one wheelchair for 20 to 30 patients.

The foundation is continuing its programmes to reach people in the cities, settlements and villages and hope to reach remote rural areas.
