Disability Lesotho June, 2015

Dear Partners,

Welcome once again to the edition of Disability Lesotho, the monthly email newsletter from Lesotho National Federation of the Disabled. The edition will cover news for the Month of June, 2015

This e-newsletter is a platform whereby partners in the disability sector share the good work they do and learn from the work of others. This includes news, concerns, events, updates, activities and all issues affecting people with disability in Lesotho. We therefore welcome contributions of any nature from all organizations and institutions working to improve the lives of people in Lesotho, including those with disability.

I think it’s high time that the Lesotho government should take issues of law into consideration. People with disabilities in this country have been crying fowl to have Disability Equity Bill. Many things are happening to them, some of them are arrested, and some are abused with all types of abuses. There is no law specifically for them yet the government signed the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2008. There are no disability specific measures to ensure that ensure that the government is willing to handle issues of disability smart in this country.
