THE SOCIAL PROJECTS DEVELOPED FOR THE PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES, THEIR LEGAL RIGHTS, AND LAND USE ARRANGEMENTS DONE IN OUR COUNTRY DRAW ATTENTION IN RECENT YEARS.
December 3 is recognized as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The Day of Persons with Disabilities was recognized first by the United Nations in 1992, targeting to create awareness for the disabled. This awareness should not be confined within one day.
During this special day, special events are organized around the world and in our country. These activities are free of charge and they are based on voluntary work. Celebrating this special day with the supports of government and non-governmental organizations varies. Each year, a new theme is determined and the events are organized in accordance with this theme.
It might happen to any of us
Disability is not a situation that only has to do with the disabled person or the person’s family. On the contrary, requires awareness from all of us. The social projects developed for the persons with disabilities, their legal rights, and land use arrangements for their comfort and safety in our country draw attention in recent years. However, not to marginalize the disabled and to change and renew our personal views towards them would be possible through a transformation of the mind.
