Day to fo­cus on dis­abil­i­ties

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - PAGE TWO -

The In­ter­na­tional Day of Per­sons with Dis­abil­i­ties will be ob­served on Satur­day. The United Na­tions has pro­moted the day since 1992 to en­cour­age a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of peo­ple suf­fer­ing from var­i­ous dis­abil­i­ties. This year’s theme is “Achiev­ing 17 Goals for the Fu­ture We Want.” That is a ref­er­ence to the UN’s adop­tion of 17 Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals and the role of th­ese goals in build­ing a more in­clu­sive and eq­ui­table world for per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties.
