December 3rd marked the UN’s International Day of Persons With Disabilities, a day on which the UN hopes to inspire a “transformation towards a sustainable and resilient society for all”.

We celebrate your courage, dedication and life changing impacts. We are with you every day and we stand/sit with you with pride.
