BRIDGEPORT -

A disabled couple from Bridgeport is thanking News 12 Connecticut for helping them get a wheelchair ramp for their home.

As News 12 reported, Anthony Nah needs dialysis three times a week, but is unable to get down his front steps.

His wife, Carolyn, is recovering from surgery and also needs a ramp.

The Needs Clearing House worked with other organizations to purchase the ramp after seeing the couple's story on News 12’s newscast.

Bridgeport City Council members accepted the gift Sunday morning on behalf of the couple.

“I'm very grateful,” says Bridgeport City Council member Denese Taylor-Moye. “I'm very grateful, and I know the family is very grateful."

Mayor Joe Ganim says, "The Needs Clearing House performs miracles in Bridgeport on a regular basis, and should be commended for helping this couple."
