Disabled Fadama tailor pleads for support

By Paul Nyojah Dalafu January 14, 2020 694 6 comments

A 34-year-old, physically challenged stroke patient, Maxwell Anusabe Donkor, has appealed to the general public and benevolent non-governmental organisations for assistance to reopen his tailoring shop, which has burned to ashes.

Mr Donkor’s tailoring shop was located in Old Fadama, a suburb of Accra. It was among hundreds of shops and private homes gutted by fire on Sunday January 5 2020.

Bum rush

Narrating his ordeal to the Daily Statesman, the victim said he was in church when his attention was drawn to the fire. His attempt to rush to salvage his goods and equipment proved futile because he got there only to meet a burned-down shop.

“My industrial machine for furnishing materials, two sizable sewing machines, and [all the] dresses given for work have been lost to the fire,” he said.

He also said he lost GHC4,700, being sales he made during the Christmas festivities.According to the tailor, the disaster has rendered him unemployed and compelled him to seek refuge with a brother.

Benevolent groups

Mr Anusabe, a father of one, added that food and accommodation have become a big problem for him. Consequently, he is compelled to hawk water on the street to make a living.

He is therefore calling on individuals, the general public and non-governmental organisations to come to his assistance and help him start afresh.

“I am pleading with Ghanaians to come to my rescue so I can set up my business again and take care of my child,” he appealed.
