Reader donates wheelchair to disabled Hanover resident
Notoya Davis-Burrell, a resident of Clarendon, has come to the assistance of 85-year-old Gwendolyn Russell of Forrest in Hanover, who, her family members said, was in need of a wheelchair.
"As a family, we are very happy that WESTERN STAR was able to highlight the need of my aunt, to the point that a perfect stranger, all the way from Clarendon, could read her story and stretch her hand to help," Veronica Gray said.
"Personally, I must give God thanks for answering our prayers, and to Mrs Davis-Burrell for responding to our appeal for help," Gray added.
WESTERN STAR reported on December 11, 2018, that Russell, an elderly woman, was in need of a wheelchair. Russell's left leg was amputated approximately 60 years ago in a train accident.
"With this wheelchair, my aunt will be able to sit up when she is tired of laying down in bed; plus I can take her comfortably to church and she will be able to sit on her verandah or in her yard, where she can get fresh air," Gray said.
