P400 000 worth of assistive equipment

On Friday Orapa, Letlhakane and Damtshaa Mines (OLDM) donated assistive devices worth P400, 000 to the Boteti District Health Management Team.

Debswana donated 60 wheelchairs, 60 walker frames, 150 elbow crutches, 100 ferrule Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).

In his speech during the handover, OLDM General Manager Mogakolodi Maoketsa, said it was their firm belief that the donation would go a long way in supporting Boteti District which faces a shortage of assistive devices thus negatively impacting the quality of life for people with disabilities in the District.

He said through the Debswana Building Forever Strategy, Debswana is committed to improving the lives of the communities around their mines.

“The objective is to impact lives and build a legacy that will endure well beyond the life of the Debswana Mines,” said Maoketsa.

The GM said one of the key strategic focus areas of Building Forever strategy is ‘Women, Girls and people with Disabilities”.

“Initiatives under this strategic tenet aim to promote the empowerment of women, girls and people with disabilities to ensure that all have equal opportunity to improved livelihoods,” Maoketsa said.
