The donation of the wheelchair came just over a week after Minister Cummings visited the community of McDoom on another outreach and met Doreen Williams and promised to obtain a wheelchair for her son.

Ms. Williams expressed her appreciation for the promptness of the response and the fact that her son who is now an amputee due to the accident which occurred more than a year ago, will be mobile once again.

“I am thankful for this. My son would be able to move around because it is over a year now that he has not been able to move around due to the accident.  I am grateful for this,” she stated.

Minister Cummings said that the government is dedicated to ensuring that everyone can experience the good life that is promised. “We are happy to make this donation to her son.”

Today, the government carried out a massive outreach which attracted hundreds of persons. The idea was to take the government services to the people so that they can have their issues addressed on the spot or begin the process of finding a resolution. The initiative is one of many that is slated to be carried out countrywide as was assured by Minister of State Joseph Harmon.
