I am happy to announce that last week Gulu Disabled Persons Union (GDPU) officially opened the bus park toilet. The ceremony joined together GDPU and the Pece Division Local Council to see the final product.
Stephen Okello, the Vice-Chairperson of Pece Division delivered remarks during the ceremony. “We the government thank you. We have to work with partners to achieve our goals. Together we will try our best to improve the lives of persons with disabilities. Persons with disabilities are considered not to contribute like other persons. However, they have much to contribute to our society. We really thank you” said Okello.
All repairs were completed in October with inspections made by the Pece Division Inspector of Health, Patrick Ogwang. GDPU will now take on the role of closely monitoring the toilet and maintaining strong relationships with the local government, in order to ensure sustainability.
