DO YOU NEED A FREE CAR? This is no joke,it's very real..

I am a single disabled mother aged 52 years. My names Rebecca Nakanwagi, I was born in Masaka district 82 kilometers from the city Kampala \Uganda Africa. We are four children in our family and I am the eldest among my sisters. Our father was a peasant who was killed in the war when he had gone to his usual field work in 1985. My mother is still alive but very old she is 78 years.
According to my mother, I was born as any other normal child but as I had just started walking, polio attached me. It started as fever mum tells and I ended up crowing. My mother tried various hospitals for treatment and I ended up with my spine cord curved ( a big harp appears at my back) my right leg is very small and limping am supported by a walking cane. My left hand is weakened at the upper joint, am too short and my movement is very slow, I have special shoes and they are too heavy for me yet they are the ones to support my walking, without these shoes I can’t walk at all. When I remove them in the house I just crow down like a baby and as am in a rented house it is also difficult for me to visit the wash rooms instead it is my children to take my poope to the wash room all the time. I can only walk a distance of 300 meters the longer distance I use a motor-cycle type of transport which is costly to me.
I was educated to a secondary level due to the death of my father. My mother struggled with us in terms of tuition fees, health problems, clothing’s, food in order to grow up. As my mother was left alone she managed to take me for a Secretarial Course after that I was employed by the Planning Department. As I grow up I got 2 children all boys the elder one is 26 years and the youngest is 15 years he is still at secondary level form three (3) the father to these children denied them responsibility in fear of public opinion as he is able boded, instead it has been me to carry on all the father’s responsibility and mine too.
I am working as a secretary in Planning Department in our country but my salary is very little according to my needs, I have to pay tuition for my children, feeding them, pay house rent, clothing, health problems and also looking after my old mother. From home to my place of work I use public transport which makes my life so difficult moving from one vehicle to another this is because my boobs are too big to be supported by my legs which is due to over sitting all the time I need to be supported entering the vehicle all the time. At times people don’t want to support me I need to plead for that support in order to enter the vehicle. When it rains, things become so complicated at times I reach late or I don’t go to work. My colleagues at work don’t want to take me in their vehicles may be because I use a walking cane I don’t know they just leave me behind. Hospitals are very far, I also go by public means or I go by motor cycles known as (boda-boda) going to the market I use the same motor cycle type of transport. When am unable to go shopping I just send my children but they don’t buy things of my choice. I can’t move more than 300 meters from my house.
I plead for you who is reading this message to get me a car to easy my movement I don’t mind a second hand car can also help me, I can’t afford buying it myself. Please come to my life be my savior and get me out of this problem.
This vehicle can help me move without asking for help to easy my movement for me to gain peace of mind
Thank you
