DIF-SIL Expresses Gratitude to the President and Government of Sierra Leone for Empowering the Disabled thumbnail

The Board, Management, and Staff of the Disabled International Foundation-Sierra Leone (DIF-SIL) express their sincere gratitude and unreserved appreciation to His Excellency, the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma and the Government of the Republic of Sierra Leone on the promulgation of the Disability Act 2011 and the consequent setting up of the Disabled Commission in August 2012.

DIF-SIL is a privately funded, Non-governmental and Non-profit Organisation that was founded in 2008 with feeding centres in Freetown and Waterloo and a proposed site at Lungi. The organisation caters among others, for the needs of the disabled in Sierra Leone with a view to empowering and ameliorating their standard of living. In pursuant of its main objective, DIF-SIL, in collaboration with other related agencies, strives to work through advocacy, skills training and empowerment, development projects and educational programmes in order to eradicate the public prejudice against, alleviate the plight of and ensure greater social inclusion for the disabled.

To this end, the organisation regards government’s effort as a laudable step and recognition of the disabled as keys partners in the President’s Agenda for Change. DIF-SIL is therefore much appreciative of this unprecedented gesture from a government to provide for and protect its less privileged but equally deserving citizen as the country moves into the Agenda for Prosperity.

Once again and in the words of its founder and CEO, Imanbay Kadie Kamara, DIF-SIL says: ‘thank you, Mr. President and Government of the Republic Government of Sierra Leone for recognizing and empowering the disabled’.
