LIMBANG: A senior citizen here was touched by the generosity of individuals who donated a wheelchair which was handed over by exco members of Progressive Democratic Party (PDP), Batu Danau.

Bedil Bayang from Rumah Mual said with the wheelchair he is now more mobile in the house and is able to visit relatives nearby.

“Thankfully, I finally achieved my dream to be more mobile even though I have to use a wheelchair,” he said while receiving the wheelchair from PDP Batu Danau chairman Andrew Tukau.

Also present were political secretaries to the Chief Minister, Alexender Asing and Robert Ayu, organising secretary Lina Yong and PDP State Youth Exco Daniel Taha.

Andrew said the donation was part of PDP’s state-wide social welfare programme for members and the public in need.
