Are there support services that help on carrying out cases of Injustice for pwd's in Kenya?
Now and then we hear disheartening stories of discrimination/abuse/exploitation/neglect and even death within the pwd community.
Under the constitution of Kenya, 2010 article 27(4) states that " the state shall not discriminate directly or indirectly against any person on any ground, including race sex, pregnancy, marital status, health status, ethnic or social origin, colour, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, dress, language or birth"
IT IS CLEAR AND VERY DIRECT!
Though we live in a society where we are still battling with recognition, fight for our very existence.
In closed doors, we face a whole lot of forms of discrimination and abuse both mentally and physically.
Exploitation also is the biggest challenge of them all having some organizations in scandals that involve money laundering, having the good cause or the idea behind a beneficial initiative turned into a business plan.
Neglect that later leads to the death of a PWD, thrown away from their homes because of their disability.
How can we trust people in society for protection?
