Day for Disability Awareness

jornada-discapacitat--3-1The Formentera Department of Social Welfare reports that the island’s second Day for Disability Awareness (Jornada del Discapacitat) is taking place this morning. A range of professionals from across the Pine Islands are scheduled to attend the event, which is geared not just towards professionals, but families and any other interested parties. After a 9.15am start time this morning, the programme will wrap up at 2.00pm.

During the welcoming ceremony, social welfare chief Rafael Ramírez hailed the involvement of disabled individuals’ support groups on the island. He also pointed out that “the work they're doing, and the assistance they provide, are a pretty good indicator of where we're at as a society”. The councillor also highlighted the crucial role of families — “they're the real champions”, he insisted.
