Call from disability network.
I do have many cases where women and girls with disabilities are abused. For a long time I didn't know where to go and report and lay charges. I joined my fellow African women with disabilities in New York, in June 2000. We formed the movement of African disabled women, in which Namibia is included. There we discussed a lot about violence against disabled women and girls with disabilities.
My aim to write this short note is to request your organisation to put our organisation on your list. Please when you are organising your programmes do not hesitate to invite us. We are having a lot to share with you about disabled village women and children.
For more information please contact me at 065-241492, P. O. Box 1584 Oshakati.
--Ms Rauh Peneyambeko Nehale (Coordinator) Network of Women and Children with Disabilities
Dear Ms Nehale, we appreciate your letter and will certainly put you on our list of organisations to invite to our activities, and also our mailing list for Sister Namibia magazine. We can learn a lot from each other.
