International Day of Persons with Disabilities
According to Columbia News, Views and Reviews, approximately 15 percent of the world’s population is currently living with a disability (Columbia News, Views and Reviews, 2017). Even though persons with disabilities (P..WDs) experience physical, social, economic and attitudinal barriers to participate in activities of daily living, work and play all over the world, the level of services and support that they receive differs across communities. Several international organizations like the United Nations and the World Health Organization are working towards greater inclusion and integration of P.W.Ds into the society. The leadership of these organizations understands that when a community offers support and inclusion services for persons with disabilities, the entire society benefits.
