Livingstone Etse Satekla, musically known as Stonebwoy has donated cash to the blind community in Kumasi for the purchase of white canes.
The dancehall artiste gave four hundred cedis towards the worthy cause when he was called upon Ivan Heathcote of Ultimate FM.
The ‘Putuu’ hit-maker has pledged to ensure that he takes up the challenge to purchase more of the canes for the Ghana Blinds Union to distribute to its members.
Stonebwoy, however, cautioned drivers, street hawkers, and the citizenry at large to respect, allow passage, and offer help to all persons who they find walking with white canes.
“Let me use this opportunity to let all people know that once you are alive, you have not escaped disability because we are prone to injuries and accidents. We have to give priority to persons with disabilities,”.
Advising drivers, he admonished “if you see these white canes with the red marks on it, you should know that these are people who are visually impaired and you have to accord them such respect to the maximum.”
