International Day of Persons with Disabilities

“Today as we celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we highlight the importance of ensuring equal participation of disabled persons in all aspects of our societies. I commend the many Sudanese NGOs and activists involved in promoting the rights of people with disabilities. Through the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Mission has supported a variety of programs in Darfur and the Two Areas that have helped disabled people gain access to opportunities and empowered them to contribute to their communities.” Chargé d’Affaires Brian Shukan
