International Disabled Day:
As yet another World Disabled Day is celebrating on 3rd December, the disabled persons would as anticipated recollect the promises and assurances given to them during the last World Disabled Day around a year back and understand that nothing much has changed in their life content. While promises and celebrations take place year after year like a ceremony, seminars and conferences, several of the disabled persons continue to live on in conditions of poverty and uncertainty, not knowing as to what the future would hold for them. With physical immobility on the one hand and lack of resources and insufficient income on the other hand, most of the disabled persons do not have the access to quality educational institutions or the facilities to acquire the requisite skill to employ them.
Government Hollow Slogans:
While the government has some schemes to help them, the fact is that such schemes are far too inadequate considering the population of the disabled persons and the intensity of their problems. The disability not only causes physical discomfort but also mental trauma and frustration as they cannot be part of the mainstream of life, which make their life doubly difficult. The reservation provided by the government in jobs is far too inadequate and most of the disabled persons are not benefited by such reservation policies. In Pakistan this time disabled people celebrated a disabled day as a strong protest. Because every year the entire world celebrates this day with great enthusiasm but there is no one truly to help them. Everyone has hollow slogans.
APPEAL TO UNITED NATION:
I extremely appeal to the respected Secretary-General of the United Nation. Please create such suitable jobs which are reserved only for all disabled people. I also request to the Google Company and other Multinational companies to create special online jobs for those disabled people who can not go to any office or work regularly because of their severe disability, Especially for ADULT Disabled People. Because Many corporate bodies and individuals living in prosperous and comfortable circumstances do come forward to help the disabled persons to some extent but only by way of charity and not by providing them support in their self employment activity.
The government has a big responsibility in this matter, as it has to work out and implement appropriate policies and programs to enable the disabled persons self employ themselves. While a feeling of compassion amongst the citizens towards the disabled persons is desirable, it will not be adequate if such compassion would only lead to occasional charities. But, on the other hand, it should result in a sustained campaign of supporting the disabled persons to fruitfully employ themselves. I also request to all the disabled people of the world please leave your comments as special appeal to UN Secretary-General so that he himself takes these a lot of appeal very seriously and taking these appeal and request into account so that he create suitable jobs in UN and its sub-organization. We need your support.
