ABOUT THE PWD FORUM
The PWD Forum aims to increase the awareness of the “normal” people—particularly those in governments—to the true situation of persons with disabilities (PWDs). It would just be a plus if there would be PWDs and non-PWDs alike who would join the discussions and/or initiate the conversations themselves.
The PWD Forum is an apolitical and a non-partisan blog. Any material attributed to a personality, organization, or media is out of respect for its copyright only.
