International Day of Persons with Disabilities is celebrated in the USA on December 3rd. The date is dedicated to people with disabilities. Its goal is simple: to help them, to improve their standard of living, to do everything for a comfortable stay in society. Join the big movement!
The holiday is founded by the UN. Every year, the movement does a tremendous job to save people with disabilities from problems. Worldwide, about 15% of people have serious health problems. This is a very large number! One has only to listen to people’s stories about the difficulties they experience daily, and the heart begins to beat faster. It is sad that you can not deprive the situation with a wave of a magic wand! But you can unite and make every effort for this.
Organization of inclusiveness is the main goal. It is important to involve people in daily activities by opening up the necessary resources for them. They should not feel inferior to others and get the same out of life as people without disabilities.
Did you know that:
- of the 1 billion people with disabilities in the world, about 120 million have severe functional limitations;
- people with disabilities are more susceptible to COVID-19;
- about half of people over the age of 60 have some type of disability.
