Impala Car Rental through its Alfred Dondo Foundation continue to give back to the community following a donation of a wheel chair and groceries to twenty-year old Mike Saujeni who got paralyzed at a tender age.

Saujeni, an aspiring musician is born in a family of four with all other siblings suffering from a different disabilities.

In the absence of a wheel chair, the young man suffered as he sued to crawl to get into the toilet and do some things at home.

His mother Anne Mangadze who almost broke into tears while narrating Saujeni's ordeal said it was difficult for her to take care of the children with their conditions and as such she was failing to raise money to buy a wheel chair for him.

"I was going through a lot because all my children are disabled and for Mike it was worse because he is paralysed. Going to the toilet was difficult for him without a wheel chair, he also needed hand gloves because he crawl to get into the toilet," she said.

Mangadze was grateful to the car rental company for their love, saying the donation would go a long way in assisting his child's endeavor.

Saujeni is an aspiring musician who is yet to record any song.

"He loves singing and this donation would go a long way in assisting him to persue his dream. I am glad that we still have companies that have a long heart," she said.

Saujeni thanked Impala Car Rental saying the company has assisted him to fulfill his dreams.

"Life has been unbearable for me because I had no wheelchair. But now they have assisted me with one and my dream will come true soon," he said.

Tracy Ngoma, Impala Car Rental brand and projects manager said they would continue with their charity works in the country.

"Touched by Mike Saujeni's plight we found it fit as a company through our Alfred Dondo foundation to assist him with a wheel chair and some groceries. We will be doing the same initiatives across the country. We are glad that our initiatives have assisted several people," she said.

The car hiring company continues to give back to the community and last week they assisted a Mvurwi girl who suffered severe burns after an inferno to go under a plastic surgery.
