Further Step Should be taken:

The participants has also indicated and urged to this point that there is growing concern of disability within the region and further step should taken into this regard. There is special arrangement in Europe and in United states for the development of disabled people. But unfortunately in south asia and in third world countries there is no disability awareness. The newly establish organization SADF is an excellent step towards disabled people development. So that people with disabilities are entitled to enjoy the same rights, privileges and other useful opportunities as other citizens.
