Mozambican First Lady Isaura Nyusi has urged all Mozambicans to respect and promote the rights of persons with disabilities, knowing that they all enjoy the same rights and are equal before the law.
In a message celebrating the 2019 International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Isaura Nyusi states that “at a time when our brothers and sisters living with some form of disability are experiencing various social and economic difficulties, from lack of opportunities for employment and training among others, we are all called upon to contribute to the rapid social integration of this target group so that they feel an integral part of Mozambique’s development.”
Isaura Nyusi’s message urges all public and private entities, civil society and the general public to actively and permanently engage in the popularisation of good practices and the protection and social inclusion of persons with disabilities.
Socio-cultural activities marking the date are planned in all provinces, with the emphasis on health and services fairs, lectures and seminars on rights and respect for the disabled, and sporting events involving athletes with disabilities.
The central ceremony will take place in Maputo province, preceded by a march from the intersection of Cinema 700 to the Matola Industrial Institute.Source: Notícias
