Shawgi

IMG 6370

Shawgi lives in Queensway with his wife. He has recently become less mobile and sometimes feels very isolated. In 2011 he was introduced to Efi, a young student in London who visits him weekly as part of the befriending scheme.

Efi's given me lots of help and support, she takes me out in my wheelchair and is great company, and has broken my feeling of isolation. I enjoy her company and our discussions - we both share interests in politics and current affairs. Her visits inspire me and make me feel much happier!
