Children at Risk
  • Urgent action needed to protect these children

    According to Save the Children, about 8 million children are directly affected by the recent floods in Pakistan. Children are suffering from extreme poverty, hunger and malnutrition.

  • Rehabilitation of Disabled

    According the the 1998 statistics, there were 3,286,630 people with disabilities comprising 2.49 % of the total population of the country. Disabled peole suffer from relative invisibility and tend to be viewed as subject of protection, treatment and assistance rather than subjects of rights. Disabled people face all kinds of barriers when it comes to employment, education and health care. It’s therefore vital that the rights of these people be realised.

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities is celebrated to raise awareness about disability rights around the world. This year's theme is "break barriers, open doors: for an inclusive society for all." Join Hands with APDR to raise awareness about disability rights in Pakistan and around the world.
