International Day of Persons with Disabilities: Disability Rights are Human Rights

To better protect and promote the rights of persons with disabilities, let’s (as individuals and society) STOP the “Othering”/exclusion/discrimination and ill treatment of persons with disabilities.

Anti-discrimination laws and policies are not sufficient in shifting negative societal attitudes and perceptions. Shifting negative societal attitudes must not be hard because persons with disabilities are human like I and you!

Humanness should guide how we relate to each other. Therefore lets treat each other as such.

Stigmatization of people with disability should firstly be tackled. Instead, more encouragements, love and affection should be accosted to them. The little kindness we show them will go a long way, even without giving them cash. Thanks
