It was a dream come true for Jim Arshar, a Gweru based youth, who demonstrated that disability was not inability as he went on and donated three bags of clothes to Midlands Children Hope Center in Gweru a fortnight ago.
The donation which was done in a collaborated effort with Just Homes (J.H) Properties, a local property developer, also comprised of foodstuffs.
Arshar, who became visually impaired in 2017 after suffering from an (undisclosed) eye ailment, said disability was not inability and disabled persons have to fight to get their place in the society.
He said the society still stigmatizes and discriminates against persons with disability and remains difficult for them to break even.
“This is my first initial donation and am very happy because it has been my dream to reach out to vulnerable children.
“It was always my desire to make my community a better place for vulnerable members of our society.
“I would like express my sincere gratitude to our partners Just Homes Properties, my family and friends who have made this donation a success,” said Arshar.
Just Homes (J.H) Properties sales and marketing officer Precious Muzadzi said they were humbled by Arshar’s commitment to help other vulnerable members of the society.
“Arshar has shown that being disabled is not inability. He has moved from being dependent on others and taken it upon himself to be better and improve himself.
“He has taken it upon himself to help others despite his condition. We have decided to join him in his quest because his idea was very noble,” said Muzadzi.
The children’s home currently houses 18 inmates.
