Indian Consulate General to Liberia Shri Upjit Singh Sachdeva has put a big smile on the face of 21 – year-old disabled man Francis Blamo after presenting a brand new KIP wheelchair to facilitate the beneficiary’s movement.
Francis Blamo, commonly called ‘Pushu Boy,’ resides on Center Street in Central Monrovia where Mr. Sachdeva (Jeety) presented the wheel chair when the disabled man arrived at the Center Street COVID-19 cooked food distribution point which is under Jeety’s auspices.
Flanked by some members of the food distribution team, Mr. Jeety who is known for his humanitarian assistance to less fortunate Liberians, says he is pleased to turn the wheelchair over to Mr. Blamo because of his physical condition.
He discloses that with the presence of the wheelchair, Mr. Blamo can now move around on a daily, expressing hope that the wheelchair would make a difference in the disabled man’s life. Receiving the wheelchair with smiles on his face, Blamo says he has been following the hard work of the Indian businessman in Liberia, referencing his helps to several less fortunate and underprivileged Liberians.
According to him, the presentation of the brand new wheelchair by Mr. Jeety manifests the goodwill of the Indian Consulate to Liberia, praying that the Almighty God continues to bless the donor as he extends his humanitarian gesture to other less fortunate people in other parts of the country. He calls on others in the country to emulate the good example of Mr. Jeety by assisting less fortunate people who do not have the ability to provide things for themselves.
