Disability is not inability, YES, this statement is true in the life of Ghana’s only quadriplegic artist, who passionately paints a portrait of 2nd lady Samira Bawumia.
Even though little is known about this talented young man, however, Joel Acheampong became a quadriplegic at age 7 through an accident. He is married with four kids and runs an NGO that supports other handicapped artists.
Let’s encourage great and talented people with a disability like this young man, reminding ourselves that, apart from those born from birth, disability can happen to anyway through accident and among others.
Stop discrimination and support the less privileged.
