Having spinal injury is not end of one’s life, says NGO – Businessday

A non-governmental and non-profit making organisation, Rebuilding Hope on Wheels Initiative (RHOWI), founded by Hajia Amina Audu to improve the lives of people with disabilities, particularly those with Spinal Cord Injuries and Dysfunction (SCI/D), has started visiting hospitals in the South East to encourage people with spinal cord injuries.
The group that visited Orthopedic Hospital Enugu on Wednesday, August 16th with a lot of gift items for people with spinal cord injuries in the hospital ward said that their message was “having spinal cord injuries does not mean the end of such person’s life.”

Speaking to journalists after visiting spinal cord injury patients in their ward at HRH Eze Godwin Ahanonu Spinal Injury Care Complex in Orthopedic Hospital Enugu, the South East coordinator of RHOWI, Ejikeme Fineglo said the organisation was promoting social inclusion and removing barriers for people in wheelchair to participate in social and occupational activities like any other citizen “RHOWI has engaged relevant stakeholders since its inception to change the directional way of treating people with spinal cord injuries and Dysfunction to specific rehabilitation that teaches people with the injury on how to live life after spinal cord injuries,” Ejike said.
