He said that the sad reality that all should accept is that many from the population have to cope this matter.

“Many families have atleast one child with some kind of disability. The past regimes have not provided these children with adequate facilities. We have been neglectful of their education and health,” he said.

“I support the call advocating their rights and granting them their rights,” he said.
