International day of Persons with Disabilities

Every year, December 3 is observed as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities recognized by the UN. The day is observed with a motive to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the rights of persons with disabilities.

For this noble cause, Rehabilitation Society, TUF organized an event in Health Sciences Campus. Students presented a skit to highlight the theme “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all” of the year 2017.

Rehabilitation Society also donated wheelchairs, crutches and walking frames to disabled persons. Prof Dr Muhammad Saeed, Dean Faculty of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences spoke about the importance of the day.  He said that our efforts could help the special children explore their capabilities to overcome disabilities.
