DISABILITY INCLUSION ON WORLD HUMANITARIAN DAY

“Disability inclusion is an essential condition to upholding human rights! Persons with disabilities are known to be at increased risk of protection concerns and transmission of the virus in the COVID19 pandemic. This is because they can face higher exposure rates due to the need for close contact with personal assistants/caregivers. Also, due to travel restrictions, persons with disabilities may be separated from family and/or primary caregivers and not have companions to facilitate their access to services.” says Lalith Wickramasinghe.
