Kenyan Paralympians are the first batch of athletes to receive money from the Government as they struggle to deal with the partial lockdown that has turned their daily lives upside down.

The Ministry of Sports paid 231 Paralympians as the Sports Stimulus Programme disbursements kicked off on Friday. Each athlete received Sh10000, GameYetu confirmed.

“As a sportswoman, it has been a difficult time for me following the coronavirus pandemic but through KNPC leaders, members have been getting hope and some help.

“Today was a blessed day, I have received money from the Ministry of Sports. I’m planning to buy foodstuff to sustain me in this difficult time,” one of the athletes, Miriam Nandwa, told Standard Sports.
