A 29-year-old Chitungwiza physically challenged woman was all smiles on Friday after she was handed a brand new wheelchair courtesy of Mahwindo and Killer T foundations.

She was spotted by one Brian who then alerted Wanisayi “Mahwindo” Mutandwa and friends to assist her with a new wheel chair since hers had dilapidated.
In an interview, Guba said she was born normal.
“Ndakatsva nemoto ndiri mwana mucheche ndakarapiswa ndikatombofamba zvakanaka then the problem came when I was 13 years. I then started having problems of walking, ndikatanga kufamba ndakapfugama.

Selima said she was once married.
“I was once married and I have 4 children.
“I am excited to receive this offer since it has lighten my burden.
“I am used to this situation but its painful kufamba uchiita madhaka.”
Mahwindo said they were moved to see her condition.
“The donation was courtesy of Mahwindo Foundation but I was accompanied by Killer T and his Foundation.
“We are partners in this noble cause and it did not take us time to receive donations from our supporters.
“We are receiving overwhelming response from donors.
“We really thank people who are standing by us including media coverage from H-Metro,” she said.
“We are also helping children in Mbare where we donated more than 50 jackets for winter.
