Continuous services for disabled ensured -- authority.

Supervisor of the Public Authority for Disability

Affairs Issam Bin Haidar confirmed on Thursday it would not be "acceptable to

stop" any of services provided to disabled nationals but rather such services

would continue to this segment of the society. Haidar told KUNA that all citizens of special needs should rest assured

that all services provided to them earlier, through implementation of Law No.

49 of 1996, would continue. Those benefiting from the aid include nationals under the age of 18 years,

with around Kuwaiti Dinar 185 allocated for normal disability cases and KD 227

for cases of middle and high level of handicap. Disability pension for those who are over the age of 18 years old amounts

KD 475 dinars for singles, and for those who are married and have children, an

extra pension is provided, including prosthetic devices and educational

support, the authority supervisor said. Haidar noted department readiness to receive all those in need for such

services, in compliance with legislations and laws regarding the disabled
