Crime Check Foundation, CCF has handed over a brand-new industrial sewing machine valued at One Thousand Ghana cedis to 25 year old physically challenged Stella Hordzor after she knocked on the doors of CCF for support to start her own business.
The young lady told crimecheckghana how she was mocked by her colleagues and people she came into contact with. Worse of it she said, was her inability to secure a job due to her affected hand which the employers say when they give her the opportunity it will impede their business.
“I attended a fashion school and after completion, I decided to polish it up with a sewing firm. My madam used to complain bitterly that I worked slowly so I left. I have been looking for a job but people turn me down because of my lame hand.” She said.
Stella said the only support she gets is from her aged mother who hawks okro. The skilful seamstress says she has been abandoned by her father who has remarried another woman because she attended a Vocational School which his dad opposed.
“My mother is fast ageing and if she quits hawking life will be difficult. Since I had a misunderstanding with my dad after I completed Junior High School, I haven’t heard from him again. She is making a new family somewhere and does not care about us.” She said.
Crime Check Foundation, CCF soothed her pains when it gifted her an industrial sewing machine amounting to One Thousand Eight Hundred Ghana cedis through one of its UK based anonymous donors to enable her establish her own business to fulfil her dreams.
The poor lady was grateful to the Foundation and its donor for the support. “May God bless CCF for coming to my aid, and to the donor through whom I have received this support, may God restore whatever she has lost for my sake.” She prayed.
To support Stella, CCF appeals to the general public to contact it via call or WhatsApp on 0242074276/024889538.
