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"


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?

    I believe in having persons with disability in the fore front in terms being activists, lawyers and even judges. From this, they can have the experience and don't have to be told stories of what has happened but have probably been in the shoes and can be easier to push legislations and rulings.

    I agree. I feel if we have more of our own in the representation and our voices and stories heard, it would make a big difference.
