Helping disabled people live normal lives is a family business


Bulolo District Disability Association has called on families of persons living with disabilities to realise their needs.
The association called on families to pay attention to the specific needs of people with disabilities living at home. Programme cordinator Richard Sopera said people with disabilities could participate in development like normal people.
He said the United Nations fully recognised people living with disabilities in families and communities.
Sopera made the call during World Disability Day celebrations in Bulolo on Monday. The actual day was last Sunday, Dec 3.
Association executives carried out an awareness programme in Bulolo.
Board chairman Gibson Pakiabi urged individual family members to take good care and fully support people living with disabilities in homes and communities.
