LABARD for special attention to disable persons.
LAHORE -- Lahore Businessmen Association for Rehabilitation of Disabled (LABARD) President Pervez Malik MNA urged the masses to join hands as their significant role would ease lives of disabled people.
He was addressing a meetings held in connection with World Disabled Day here Friday. A large number of people from different walks of life were also present.
The LABARD President said more than 35 million Pakistani people were bearing any kind of disability and a number of disabled persons were compelled for begging due to lack of proper attention. He said with a little attention these people could become an active part of society.
He said, developed countries were giving special attention to the disabled persons. Not only buildings have special ramps but also facilities are being provided at all public places, he mentioned.
Malik said disabled people could play a special role for prosperity of the country as they had some special God gifted abilities. He said, there are many examples that disabled persons had done some excellent job so they should not leave the optimism and work with new zeal.
The LABARD has also arranged jobs for the disabled persons with an objective to give them courage to stare in the eyes of physical disability they have been suffering with.
