HCM CITY (VNS) — Local organisations in HCM City are carrying out activities to celebrate the International Day of People with Disabilities on December 3.

The Viet Nam Youth Federation Central Committee yesterday launched a programme to honour people with disabilities and the disadvantaged at the Youth Cultural House in District 1. Many of those honoured have become successful in their work.

In co-operation with Viet Nam Television's Channel VTV6, Young People Newspaper and Hoa Sen Group, the programme has attracted more than 3,000 students from universities and high schools.

During the programme, youths will be able to view an exhibition of photos taken of a worldwide limbless Australian speaker Nick Vujicic as well as photos of people with disabilities who have achieved success in life.

Students and young people with disabilities will have an opportunity to discuss employment issues with local enterprises.

On Saturday, 6,000 people with disabilities in HCM City, Can Tho and 12 provinces including Dong Nai, Binh Duong, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Lam Dong and Tay Ninh will gather at Suoi Tien Park to watch entertainment shows and take part in games. There will also be a lunch buffet.

The programme is being held by the HCM City Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs with the sponsorship of many organisations and companies.

On Sunday, the Disability Research and Capacity Development Centre will also hold an entertainment programme called An Inclusive Society for All, which will focus on the need of people with disabilities to have access to public works and buildings.

In addition, there will be games and photo exhibitions of several cities that have favourable access for people with disabilities in their public spaces. — VNS
