Zambia Agency for persons with Disabilities in Mongu has prodded the people of Western Province to participate in the commemoration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities scheduled for December 3.

 

Agency provincial chairperson Misheck Kanyanga appealed to the activists, community leaders and individuals in the province to take keen interest in this year’s activities in order to contribute towards uplifting people living with disabilities.

 

“The provincial commemorations this year will be held in Senanga and Nkeyema districts and persons with disabilities  should note that this is a vital day where they can speak out about the challenges  they are faced with,” Kanyanga said.

 

He added that persons with disabilities deserved support from communities in order to live decent lives.

“Every individual should be involved in the lives of disabled people because the condition can affect anyone,” he said.
