On the backdrop of prevailing Corona situation, an exchange of views and consultation meeting was held to increase consciousness among disabled people at the Conference Room of Deputy Commissioner of Rajshahi on Wednesday. 

ADD International and Light for the World organised the meeting. Speakers at the meeting highlighted various problems of the disabled persons and the dos of the persons with the disability during this Corona situation. 

The speakers mentioned the disabled persons in our society are the most neglected. 

Even, the family in which a disabled person live is also belittled and regarded mean. But, the speakers added, if the disabled persons are trained properly, they would also contribute to the development of the country. They said the Corona is an ongoing pandemic which is forcing people even with sound health to traverse through an adverse situation. For disabled people such situation is further complicated and risky.
