ECDD supported 600 Persons with Disabilities in BahirDar, Amhara Region


As part of an effort to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable persons with disabilities in Ethiopia, Ethiopian Center for Disability and Development (ECDD) with the financial support from Christian Blind Mission (CBM) supported 600 vulnerable persons with disabilities and their families at a cost of about 245,000 ETB. The total 600 recipients 200 of the received flour, rice, macaroni, and edible oil packages, and the rest got personal protective equipment and hygiene and sanitation materials including dignity kits for women with disabilities.


During the support ceremony, Mrs. Genet who is a visually impaired mother indicated that she is relieved from distress as her condition coupled with raising kids made her life difficult in addition to the challenges of observing social distancing due to state of emergency declaration. She added that she got income from weighing services on the streets, but the service users dwindled following the declaration of COVID-19 pandemic in Ethiopia. As a result of this, she found it difficult to feed herself and the family. Several others also mentioned that they are in difficult condition due to their limited capacity to procure sanitation and hygiene materials. Also, when it comes to food items it would be difficult to sustain themselves with no income and nonexistent stocks at home. The Regional Federation of persons with disabilities president Mr. Freselam Zegeye on his part told, “as most persons with disabilities lead their life begging and pity trading activities they were in a desperate situation”. He added that, as a community, we should stand together to support persons with disabilities in their respective localities.


As a service to job seekers with disabilities ECDD posts here recent public job vacancies.
