Stonebwoy took to instagram to express how he feels after he visited the physically disabled
“Often when people think ‘disability’ their minds jump to people with physical disabilities such as those who use wheelchairs.
But disability refers to physical, intellectual, psychiatric and even learning disabilities So Disability is an inescapable human condition and at one point or another, almost every person is exposed to, and may experience temporal or permanent disability.
For too long, people with disabilities in the world have not been able to fulfill their potential due to stigmatization, exclusion, ignorance and lack of practical support.
Yesterday, I spent time with some persons with “physical” disabilities as a Christmas Empowerment Initiative put together by My foundation, THE LIVINGSTONE FOUNDATION (@tlf_ghana ) and AFEE AFRICA to spur attendees on that there’s no glass ceiling to pursuing their dreams.
Owing to the fact that the progress of enforcing disability policies have been frustratingly slow, it has to be made clear that unless every one of our citizens can reach their full potential our nations never will – because i passionately believe persons with disabilities constitute part of the overall talent pool in the country and should also be treated fairly in accessing social, economic and development opportunities.
Attendees were not only encouraged with words but also equipped with soap making and bead making skills amongst others..”
