Fracarita Pakistan celebrates International Day of Persons with Disabilities
The International Day of Persons with Disabilities, is a day that has been promoted by the United Nations since 1992 and takes place every year on the third of December. Fracarita Pakistan celebrated this day by sensitizing students in Lahore.
The aim of Disability Day is to encourage a better understanding of people affected by a disability, together with helping to make people more aware of the rights, dignity and welfare of disabled people, as well as raise awareness about the benefits of integrating disabled persons into every aspect of life, from economic, to political, to social and cultural. This day is not concerned exclusively with either mental or physical disabilities, but rather encompasses all known disabilities, from Autism to Down Syndrome to Multiple Sclerosis.
