In Malawi, people with disabilities are among the poorest of the poor. Statistics indicate that many of them probably live on less than a dollar a day. Some Malawians call them “opunduka” and “odwala” – the crippled and the sick. While many have tried but failed to bring relief to the handicapped, one wheel chair-bound activist, Mussa Chiwaula, has succeeded. Today, he’s the executive director of the NGO the Federation of Disability Organizations in Malawi, an organization founded in 1999 to promote the rights of people with disabilities.
Every day these people can’t access easily, without the support of somebody, to their schools, their churches, the post office, the public buildings; they have also great issues to access water facilities, toilets, etc.
Steps, high steps everywhere. And where there is a ramp, it was built too steep, so people on wheel chair can’t use it if they are alone.
