Romeo Omasho – 40 Years Old: Umudein, Boji-Boji, Agbor, Delta State

My name is Romeo Omasho, I am 40 years old married with 3 children.

Well, I was a truck driver until 2007 when I had an accident with my truck. On the faithful day I took off from the loading point and was headed for Ekwulobia when the unfortunate accident occurred.

As a result I was taken to University of Benin Teaching Hospital, were I was admitted and my legs were put on plaster of Paris for over a month.

Afterwards, a review was carried out and eventually I was told that my legs would have to be amputated. This is because vein function in the legs has gone.

Ever since then life hasn’t been the same, if not for family support here and there only God know what the situation would have been.

Well, I came here today due to the information from a known person, who told me about the distribution of free wheelchairs in Agbor.

I was happy with the news because for over a year now, I have been desirous of a new wheelchair because the old one has gone bad. And since I can’t afford to buy a new one, I made it a point of duty to be present here today.

I am very, very much happy about the wheelchair, may God continue to lift all those who made this possible.

I am delighted to a part of those who are benefiting from this kindness of the foundation.
