Special day

The global community observe the International Day of Disabled Persons every year on December 3. People in Pakistan also observe that day to protect and promote the understanding and dignity of people with disabilities. Disability affects people of all age groups. With life expectancy at 66.48 years in Pakistan, there is a large proportion of elderly suffering from disabilities.

In the West, many provisions are in place to facilitate people with disabilities. In third-world countries, most such facilities exist on paper only. Similarly, in our country the government has failed to make serious efforts to ensure adequate facilities to special persons.
