The Chinese embassy has donated fifteen wheelchairs to the National Commission for the Disabled. Chinese Ambassador to The Bahamas, Her Excellency Dai Qingli presented the wheelchairs to the Commission. She said at the time, “at the Chinese embassy we count ourselves as a friend to the Bahamian people. Over the past year we have worked with Madam Bethel and her commission to deliver some concrete help in terms of tablets to the people with various disabilities in The Bahamas. So today we help with the donation of another fifteen wheelchairs for people with disabilities. We will be able to do our bit for improving their lives.”

Accepting on behalf of the commission was Chairperson, Nalini Bethel. She told Ambassador Qingli, “this is a very good demonstration, Excellency, of the generosity that you have shown us over the past year and also in the years to come. We are truly appreciative of this gesture. We thank you sincerely and we hope that in the future we’ll collaborate more.”
