A disability can best be described as a mental or physical barrier that can limit a person from doing everyday "normal" activities. Many people equate this to being handicapped. Currently, over one billion people in the world suffer from a disability. INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSON'S WITH DISABILITY, is held on December 3rd of each year to help raise awareness about those who suffer with a disability. Those who do not have a disability or who have never cared for a person with a disability can sometimes lack the necessary knowledge of the hardships of someone who has a disability. Often times, the victims are discriminated against, due to daily biases and overall lack of knowledge. This is a very important day for both the non disabled and the disabled. According to Work on Disability and Rehabilitation (WHO), the governments have been directed to assist the disabled, providing them with services and programs that are specific to the disabled. Their main focus is to "enhance the quality of life" along with raising the appropriate awareness worldwide. If you or someone you know is affected by a disability, please take this opportunity to learn more about disability benefits.
