Ismail Sabri: Govt will continue ensuring well-being of those with disabilities

KUALA LUMPUR: The government will continue ensuring the well-being and appreciating the contributions of people from all walks of life, without leaving anyone out, especially the persons with disabilities (PwD) in line with the spirit of Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysian Family), Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (pic) said.

He said with the spirit of togetherness, the government would always ensure that the disabled were given equal rights in various aspects of life.

"The disability is not a weakness, but a speciality that needs to be protected to complement all of us," he said in a Facebook post in conjunction with the International Day of PwD on Friday (Dec 3).

The Prime Minister also lauded the theme selected for this year’s International Day of PwD, which is ‘Leadership and Participation of PwD Toward an Inclusive, Accessible and Sustainable Post-Covid-19 World.' - Bernama
