Hello there ,

I wanted to share my gratitude concerning your work on promoting disabled people’s rights (from here worldpulse.com/en/community/users/jleving/posts/788). I want to suggest you share an important research that came out last week. It found that over 96% of government websites exclude disabled men and women from showing on webpages. https://www.websiteplanet.com/blog/government-websites-exclude-disabled-... think it is an important mission to promote disabled people’s rights, don’t you agree? Once again, thank you for all you are doing to promote disabled people rights. I hope you can share this study with your users along the actionable items it suggests to improve the situation.

Best,

Emily

I agree that disabled people, or differently-abled people, should be seen and heard.

Thank you for sharing this.

Hi Emily,

Big welcome, and thanks for writing on this important issue. Images are important, and excluding people with disabilities creates invisibility and does not tell the real story of a community. Inclusion would go a long way toward new understanding, respect and access to the same possibilities as people not living with a disability. Pressing our governments would be a good step forward. By the way, I wasn't able to open the link you sent, perhaps re-entering it through an edit would work. Have a great time exploring and sharing news here.

Good discovery!!!Our food matters a
lot to our health.its so wonderful you have decided to go back to the natural way of life.i could help out with guidance on how you guys can diet with a vegan or a meat free diet that will greatly help.You could do some research on the advantages of such diet to sickle cell and get back to me:)

Thanks for this post Emily. Persons living with disabilities constitute over 15% of the worlds population. Promoting the rights of disable persons is very important because the constitute a significant proportion of the worlds population. Promoting their rights means also including them development planning in our communities. When this is done, we also bring out the best in them enabling them to unleash their full potentials. Disable people have lots of potentials. Thanks for sharing this link Emily.

Hello m thank you for your post. It is time for the human race to look at each other as people first before colour, race, religion and disability.

Hey Emily!
We still have a long way to go as far as bringing awareness to every table that disability is not inability, and that being differently abled doesn't make one any lesser man/woman.
Keep the fire burning.
