Persons with disabilities are the last to be rescued in any disaster, and you know that disasters lead to disability. Problems of the disabled people during disaster situations deserve a prominent place in the humanitarian work. Reduced mobility means lesser visibility, lesser access and lesser voice. In simple language - this means lesser survival chances.
The Special Talent Exchange Programme (STEP www.step.org.pk) has established an Information and Support Centre for the flood affected people across Pakistan.
The Support Centre will:
Identify disabled people in the flood affected areas
Ensure accessibility of sanitation and food distribution in shelters
Re-linking displaced disabled persons with their families
This Information Support Centre is working 24/7.
