“Was able to gift him with a brand new wheelchair that he can ride as he exercises his limbs. He has been in dire need of a surgical procedure to correct his digestive system. I have organised for him to travel tomorrow and will cater for this. I will also take care of all the four boys educational needs. Together with their local leaders, I will ensure that their parents are able to earn a steady income so as to cater for them,” Sakaja wrote.

During the meet up, Flita and his friends got to sample the new wheelchair that allows him to ride with his hands as he exercises.
