Victims of Love

I wouldn’t pretend that I know much about the wars going on in the world today.

I do understand, however, that two disabled women were killed and four were wounded when some Israeli rockets hit a center for the handicapped in northern Gaza on this day last week.

There are also people currently getting maimed and permanently disabled almost every hour in Syria, too. They need mobility devices (e.g. tricycles, artificial limbs, corset, etc.) to facilitate their physical mobility.

In Afghanistan last year, there were 800,000 PWDs left with limited access to health facilities after their war against America. About 70% of them were over 15 years old and unemployed, while 73% were over six years old and illiterate.

The world has dealt with these ‘challenges,’ particularly in Syria. Still, much needs to be done. Why can’t we stop becoming victims of love here?

“Equality is rooted not merely on charity or accommodation, but on justice for all.” ~ Former Supreme Court Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban of the Philippines
