Mr John Adeniyi-Adegbite
I am the chair and founder of Mobility help for disabled people. The organisation was registered with the UK charity commission in December 2006. I was a successful business man running a cleaning company “John Superior Cleaning Company” before my accident. In July 2000, I had a ghastly motor accident and sustained a spinal cord injury level C6-7 and became disabled (paraplegia), I spent ten and half months in the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital, Brockley Hill Stanmore. During my hospital admission the doctors said that I will be wheel chair bound as I was 99.9% paralyzed, until miraculously I regained partial sensation on my limbs. I was promised help with mobility, that was where the name of the mobility help for disabled people came into existence. I believed that a disability does not mean your life has to stop; my aspiration is to empower disabled and vulnerable people not to give up and also to have a hope in hopelessness.
Mrs Folake Oyarinu
Part founder of Mobility help for disabled people. Born 21st May 1942. Before I became a pensioner, I was educated in Nigeria and I came to United Kingdom in 1989. I trained as a carer and did some charity work for residential and care homes. I am now disabled. I joined this organisation with two friends (John Adegbite and Clara Okufi). We sat down and thought about the treatment we were receiving. If we can help our people with depression, loneliness and talk to them that is how the charity started.
I am one of the trustee of Mobility Help for Disabled People. I am 73 years old and I live at 27 Eastwell House, Weston Street, London, SE1 4DH and I am disabled. Due to this condition, a few of us decided to form a disabled charity to help those in need. We have also rendered some help to those around us. This organisation is ready to help disabled people at all times no matter the state of our condition. The organisation will appreciate full support.
