Millions of people worldwide have invisible disabilities. Like their peers with visible disabilities, they often face stigma and discrimination as well as abuse that occurs in a range of settings including institutions, prisons, hospitals and homes.
People with invisible disabilities are also at risk of exclusion from mainstream activities, education, the workforce and social activities.
Second you wondering why Dec 3rd is International Day for Persons with Disabilities
International Day of Persons with Disabilities falls on the 3rd of December each year, with the aim of promoting empowerment, and helping to create real opportunities for people with disabilities. This enhances their own capacities and supports them in setting their own priorities. Empowerment involves investing in people in jobs, health, nutrition, education, and social protection. When people are empowered they are better prepared to take advantage of opportunities, they become agents of change and can more readily embrace their civic responsibilities.
