THE Hohola Rehabilitation Centre yesterday received stationary items worth more than K1,500 from sports icon Ryan Pini with an aim to support disability work in the city.
Pini, whose family owns the city’s largest stationery supermarket, Theodist, had centre director Brown Kapi collect items to that value without charging a dime.
Pini said he was grateful to lend a hand to support the work of people with disabilities in any way he could.
Kapi, who operates the centre mainly on donated goods, funds and equipment had asked for the assistance through writing two weeks ago when the centre faced limited stocks of administration inventories.
He said he was delighted when the company replied and asked him to collect any item needed at the centre.
“This is very generous and supportive of Theodist, particularly Ryan Pini, to do this. The supplies will last for more than two to three months and I am happy that this will directly benefit the work of disability rehabilitation that we administer at our Hohola office. I hope to see this partnership blossom,” Kapi said.
The items included printing cartridges, A4 papers, stapling machines, white board markers, wall pins, tapes and envelopes. These items will also be used in the rehabilitation exercises and workshop the centre holds every month for people living with disabilities in the city.
