your post made me cry...
Thanks for keeping us informed!

Kamsin

Thanks for this post. It is so shocking that disabled people can get treated in the way you described. Let's hope and pray that the UN treaty will make a real difference in the lives of those with disabilities the world over.

Susan Abraham

Thank you for this post. It made me suddenly remember Australia. It's one of the most disabled-friendly nations I know.

Paris Parfait

Thanks for sharing this important news.

gautami

Thanks for this post. Very informative. India is not very friendly for disabled people. Though there has been a slow change lately.

Your article is an eye-opener.

Kim G.

Such important information. Thanks for sharing it! Happy Easter!

Very informative In the News. I worked for a local agency for 9 years that provides foster care for people with disablities, helping to get many out of institutions. Our town is pretty disabled friendly now.

What an encouraging piece of news. Thanks for sharing it.

Unfortunately, though I can't be certain, since I haven't finished reading the papers I mention below, but we may be lagging behind in signing it, due to even further proposed budget cuts to services for the disabled - the headline in the Feb 07, Disability Policy Collaboration's newsletter, Washington Watch, reads:

BUSH ADMINISTRATION FY 2008 BUDGET REQUEST
DEVASTATING TO DISABILITY COMMUNITY

the full article is available at www.thearc.org, then clicking on the Washington Watch link.

Thanks for bringing up this important topic 'in the news,' Bonnie - blessings to you.

Thank you, Terri, for the information about the Disability Policy in the USA. What a terrible blow to have funds cut for people with disabilities.

Kanchhi's Korner

    Kanchhi loves to travel. His name, in Nepali, means "the littlest one", and he is the littlest of my snowleopards. He even has his own scrapbook album, called, "Where's Kanchhi?"
