February 20 is World Day of Social Justice
Presbyterian World Service & Development works with global partners to combat injustices and protect the rights of women, children, farmers, refugees and persons with disabilities. At the Garu Community Based Rehabilitation Centre in Ghana, local partners empower and teach vocational skills to people with disabilities so that they can achieve their full potential. When Lamisi injured her spine and lost the ability to walk, she thought all hope was lost. After her surgery, she received physical therapy and a pair of crutches at Garu. She was also offered training in small business development. Lamisi now owns a shop and is earning enough to meet her needs. Lamisi is filled with thanks for the support to continue living a full, productive life.
