  • [01] World Day for Handicapped People on December 3

  • [01] World Day for Handicapped People on December 3

    The National Confederation of Handicapped People said in an announcement that December 3 has been proclaimed World Day of Handicapped People and constitutes a day of social protest. It added that in Greece "10 percent of its population refuse a passive role and claim their participation in the country's social, economic and political firmament.

    As far as the national movement of the handicapped is concerned, December 3 is the culmination of an overall effort it is making on a daily basis to highlight related issues and to improve the living conditions of handicapped people and their families.

    The Confederation calls for a new public policy for the handicapped. Studies have shown that 84 percent of such people are not part of the labour force and the average family income of households having a handicapped member is less than that of other households.
