Simon Agbotsu foundation calls for support to aid disabled sports men

The Simon Agbotsu Foundation’s founder, Mr. Felix Simon Agbotsu, and Project Event Coordinator, Arnold Nii Adotey Mclean, have called on Ghanaians and corporate entities to support the foundation financially and with other resources to empower people with disabilities through sports.

Mr. Arnold Nii Adotey made this appeal during a one-on-one interview on the ‘Legend Sports’ Show with host Adusi-Poku.

The Simon Agbotsu Foundation is committed to providing people with disabilities in Ghana with a helping hand and joy through sports.

The foundation has been in existence for the past 7 years, with the aim of introducing programs like “Love and Laughter,” “Marathon Games,” and “Yes I Can Games,” all designed to give hope and inspiration to persons with disabilities.

“The main goal of organizing such games and events is to one day secure a spot in European and African games,” Arnold stated. The African Paralympic Committee and the National Paralympic Committee recognize the foundation.

“Our main intention is to take our brothers and sisters off the streets so that they do not have to depend on the benevolence of others but can instead focus on sports and other aspects of life,” he stressed.

Arnold also lamented the expenses involved in organizing events for persons with disabilities, saying, “We spend a lot of money on their transportation and the materials used for the games and events.”

He emphasized in his conclusion that people with disabilities should have equal access to job placements, noting that many disabled people have amazing potential.
