The Minister of Gender, Mrs Cynthia Mamle Morrison, the General Manager of Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Mr Manish Nambiar, the FDA Boss, Ms Delese Mimi Darko were among the top personalities that were at the event.

Mrs Cynthia Mamle Morrison applauded Arnav for always supporting PWDs and also organising the tournament.

The honorable minister encouraged PWDs not to feel inferior but get themselves involved with societal activities when the opportunity arises.

She went on to pledge government’s support to PWDs in the country, stating it will continue to provide job opportunities for them.

The Founder of Limitless, Arnav Nambiar, expressed excitement over the event, stating that the amount raised was good enough and therefore would go a long way to support the needs of the PWDs.

Being a victim of road accident in 2018, he explained his experience motivated him to support PWDs.
