Go tshela botshelo jwa gago ka kgololosego go sa kgathalatsege seemo sa bogole le Mr Phodisho Moepadira - Paraplegic

The past 26 years have been the greatest and most amazing blessing to ever happen to the beautiful South Africa and all her beloved off-springs. The country has been under a democratic regime embracing wellbeing and prosperity of all humanity regardless of race, religion or gender.
People have also on their own individual capacities explored all the benefits and fruits of democracy, more specifically its main pillar being freedom. Freedom is embraced and loved by all as it gives one a sense of dignity, and pours positively on humanity in general.
However, life being a roller coaster ride or a vicious cycle that it is, freedom can sometimes not be privilege to others like it is to the greater humanity. This can be either due to daily human related challenges like civil wars, or being imprisoned, or even being disabled.
Be that as it may be, there are those who go all out to living their lifes freely regardless of obstacles they face. Like Mr Phodisho Moepadira, a 20 years old paraplegic guy from Dithakwaneng village near Vryburg.
Mr Moepadira came across his disability condition 10 years ago after falling from a tree whilst playing with other kids. Phodisho has not allowed his disability condition to stand in the way of his dreams anyhow, in fact he has been going all out to living a life of his dreams, an aspiring musician in the making.

Lerato Moletsane ka go tshela botshelo jwa gago ka phutologo jaaka mosadi wa mosha go sa kgathalatsege seemo sa bogole

Many have been taught to perceive and embrace life as a blessing, and as such its ought to be celebrated. All the achievements or accolades one comes across or attains, they ought to be celebrated.
Unfortunately in life we do not always come across accolades worth of being celebrated, at times we come across unfortunate circumstance of events that derail us on our supposed to be happy life’s. Illnesses and accidents do happen now and then leading to unfortunate conditions of either short or long term disabilities may emerge and prove to be somehow some sort of a challenging.
Challenging as this unforeseen life’s challenges may be, we need to keep going with life and celebrate the gift of life itself. Like a little heroine has been doing, 20 years old Miss lerato Moletsane lost her right lower leg due to Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer that begins in the cells that form bones.

The father of 3 from Bronville, in Welkom does all his activism work freely without expecting any compensation in return but rather seeing changes in lives of disabled people.

Botlhokwa ba lerato le tshegetso ya masika le ditsala mo go ikamogeleng ka seemo sa gago sa bogole le Mme Valry Rampedi

: In life we all know by now that no man is an island, in order to get by one has to affiliate themselves with those who will support them in any kind or form of support that might be needed to make it through and succeed in their journey.
Support and love from loved ones or close by people is important in a sense that not only does it give strength and courage, but it also provides the necessary or needed guidance in ensuring that in all the various endeavours we pursue, we do stand great chances of succeeding.
Same applies with coming to terms with and accepting one’s disability condition. It can be a mammoth task on its own, but with rightful support structures from close family and friends one can make it peacefully so.
Like Miss Valry Rampedi, a young woman from Bolobedu village in Limpopo who was born with a normal and fully abled person until having a minor accident that resulted in her being paraplegic at the tender age of 19.
The 28 years old saw her accident affecting her mobility, resulting in her being wheelchair bound. Like many others, the support and courage from loved ones made it easier for her to accept the disability condition as simple as possible.

Go tsena mo kgolaganong ya lerato o ntse o na le seemo sa bogole le Lutendo Serumula – Neurological condition/disorder

: In life we all have dreams and aspirations, or at least most of us. This defines our inner characters and the kind of people we are or wish to be.
Many grew up believing firmly in love, they grew up being loved whole heartedly by both parents and they believed that their time to meet their soulmates, love one another and give lots of love to their children.
Unfortunately in the journey of life many things do happen, that end up derailing people from their long term dreams and aspirations, changes do occur that end up misleading many to think that they are no longer able to keep up or able to meet their dreams and aspirations.
33 years old Lutendo Serumula grew up with hopes and aspirations of one day being a family woman, a mother to beautiful children and wife to a wonderful loving man. Her hopes and dreams blinked blurry when she encountered a disability condition, rendering her to thinking that she can not be loved by any man when she is disabled.
To her surprise, she finds herself today as a mother of three and a wife to a wonderful husband, her long term dream and aspiration has occurred through the midst of her terrific ordeal of a disability life.

Go godisa ngwana wa seemo sa bogole le Mme Keneilwe Gaetsewe

In life we all have dreams and aspirations, or at least most of us. This defines our inner characters and the kind of people we are or wish to be.
Many have for many moons ago aspired to have their “hearts in a human form”, meaning their own child whom they will see as a reflection upon themselves, being their duplicate, doing many other things with them and even going to an extend of becoming friends.
Unfortunately upon the journey of conceiving and expecting, many things do go wrong, not as per expectations. Though researches state that only 1 in 25 pregnancies may result in the birth of a disabled child, rare as it is, it does happen to those few unfortunate ones. Birthing a disabled child may be nothing unfortunate, but having to nurture and upbringing them, that’s just where an unfortunate task might emerge.
Mrs Keneilwe Gaetsewe has been at that unfortunate task for the past 18 years now. The mother of 3 gave birth to a cerebral palsy child 18 years ago who had speech impairments and no control or use of both his arms. The task has not been any easy but she has been holding the fort very well up to thus far.

Go itse le go tlhaloganya bogole jwa gago le Rre Koketso Mankge

Disability is a condition that has grown to be accepted by many, and embraced it to the fullest in the most positive attitude ever.
Whether one is born with a dissability condition or it is something they encountered in the course of their lives, coming to terms with it and pursuing a happier and successful life has become the common norm in the dissability community.
The very same is the life story of Mr Koketso Mankge. The 29 years old physically challenged born young man who was born and bred in a village of Tafelkop.
Mr Mankge had a tough time learning and understanding his disability well, but eventually he did get on with it. Upon realising how many were struggling to come to terms with their disability condition and their close relatives also understanding more about it, he saw a need to start an online campaign to educate people more about disability.
