A Ghanaian Pastor based in South Africa Prophet Kelvin Bakah is set to set up a chalk production factory in Volta for people living with disabilities.
This is part of his philanthropic activities. He expressed his hope when he met some Ghana Wheelchair Basketball Federation representatives at Durban.
He requested from the Ghanaian envoy to make available to him the necessary equipment costs needed to start a chalk factory.
“It’s my hope and prayer we open some chalk factories in some parts of the country including Volta Region in order to alleviate poverty on persons living with disability since they are going to work there”, he expressed.
The ordained man of God residing in Durban, South Africa said he will give back to his home region, Volta and others the blessings he has acquired over the years.
“As part of my schedule, I will be in Ghana to carry out some surveillance and visit some disability facilities to see how best we can collaborate to improve their lifes”.
Prophet Kelvin Bakah who has lived most of his life in that part of Africa and who currently own his church is worried about the level of development back home.
“Not only is it my wish to set up chalk factory for the disabled but to also bring a branch of my church to Ghana so my people will gain salvation from God”, he added.
In his view, when persons with disability are given the needed support in terms of skilled training, it goes a long way to rake off the burden on society and they equally contribute to economic growth.
Through interaction with him, he was of the opinion that government should rather pay monthly allowance to people living with disability based on data they have annually instead of the current bureaucratic way of asking disables to apply.
