With Disability Rights Awareness Month let us remember the first hostages
6 December 2023
South Africa has just ended the celebration and acknowledgement of National Disability Rights Awareness Month which takes place annually between 3 November and 3 December. The aim of these days is to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilise support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities.
According to Nomonde Mnukwathe of the SA Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) this month is “a time for introspection on how we can advance the rights of persons with disabilities and ensure that people with disabilities are fully integrated in every area of our society.”
One of the places we should consider this - is in our foreign policy.
