Esther you are welcome and thanks for bringing up this topics, yes discrimination and violation against people living with disability is a crime imbibed in the constitution of my country Nigeria. Am going to take a closer look at cases of SGBV against person’s living with disability and the challenges of parenting for those living with disability. Thanks for sharing
