Recreational center for disabled persons soon

A non-governmental organization headed by a Sierra Leonean philanthropist Imambay Kadie Kamara has secured two acres of land in Lungi for the construction of a recreational center for disabled persons.


The center that is expected to be constructed very soon will be a school, health center, vocational institute, dwelling house, mosque and church among other facilities.

In an exclusive interview yesterday, the Executive Director of Disabled International Foundation-Sierra Leone (DIF-SL), Imambay Kadie Kamara, disclosed that the organization was established in 2008 to provide humanitarian support for persons with disabilities. She noted that the organization commenced operation in 2011.

According to her, the organization is targeting five thematic areas that include education, skills promotion, small and medium enterprises, livelihood and advocacy.

The organization, she added, is currently targeting disabled persons at Pademba Road, Grafton, Waterloo and Lungi.

Madam Kamara further stated that her organization’s core values are transparency, accountability and respect for all and sundry.

“Hundreds of disabled persons from across the country are currently benefiting from the work of the organization,” she said.   She used the interview as an opportunity to disclose that her organization would be formally launched on 25th April 2012.

Over the weekend, Madam Kamara took over one hundred disabled persons on a conducted tour of the proposed site for the construction of the recreational center.
