A DISABLED Lautoka man who received business materials from Youth and Sports Minister Laisenia Tuitubou recently, said the donated items would boost his earning capacity.

Imraan Hussein of Waiyavi said he had tried to seek aid from a number of institutions without success.

“I am so thankful to the Minister for Youth and Sports and his team for this assistance,” he said.

“With my physical challenges, I knocked on so many doors to seek help and the only response I got was for them to record my name and number and say they were going to call me.

“Today, I am still waiting for those calls. But I am so grateful that I was finally assisted by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.”

Mr Hussein is the sole breadwinner in his family.

He operates a small business selling vegetables at the Lautoka Market.
