Amputee gets scholarship from Beyond Community Care Foundation
Beyond Community Care Foundation, a non- governmental humanitarian organisation committed to Developing people, impacting lives and lifting humanity has awarded Educational scholarship to Miss Chidera Wisdom, an amputee and an SS3 student of GSS Garki, Abuja, in their home at Dei- Dei, Abuja.
Miss Chidera Wisdom whose right leg was amputated at University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital Enugu had her hopes of writing the 2021 WAEC and NECO examinations restored after Beyond Community Care Foundation came to her rescue.
Miss Chidera’s passion for education was undaunted despite her disability, however her hopes of writing her WAEC and NECO was left hanging in the balance as her mother was unable to raise the needed finance to pay for her WAEC and NECO fees registration since their father abandoned them to their fate.
Beyond Community Care Foundation team led by its Project and Media Director, Amb Timothy Nwachukwu, Hajia Mariam, Mr Richard Ehimhen and Mr Samuel Francis visited the home of Miss Chidera Wisdom for fact finding and verification following the cry for help of her mother to the Chairman of Beyond Community Care Foundation.
Following the fact finding visit to Miss Chidera Wisdom which confirmed the reality of the cry of her mother to Beyond Community Care Foundation, the Humanitarian Foundation offered the amputee, Miss Chidera, an Educational Scholarship and cash for the payment of her WAEC and NECO fees to enable her register and write the exam.
The Foundation also promised to sponsor her to the university as long as her results is good and she is willing to study.
Also, the Foundation provided the amputee with artificial limb to enable her go about her daily activities freely and avoid embarrassment.
The beneficiary and her family’s joy knew no bounds as they expressed their appreciation to the Organisation while praying God to reward the Chairman of the Foundation bountifully.
