Stephen Dombo is of the view that giving donations to disabled persons on the streets will defeat the purpose for which the Accra Rehabilitation Center exists.
According to Mr’ Dombo, the Rehabilitation Center is giving hopes to all persons living with disabilities, by training them in various vocations so as to make them earn a better living than depending on donations from the public.
He added that if the public continues to extend such unsustainable benevolence to the disabled persons, they will take delight in begging for alms rather than enrolling in the center for rehabilitation and financial independence.
Despite the defectiveness of the arms, Kofi Asare is reportedly able to draw creatively by using his mouth to hold the pencil and other tools required for the drawing.
The Accra Rehabilitation Center has trained many disabled persons since its establishment in 1962.
