Kenya: Parents Tipped On Disabled Kids

Parents in Migwani district have been asked to stop hiding disabled children since they have a right to education and socialisation.

"It is a pity to learn that many disabled children have been locked up in homes for fear of stigma. Having a disabled child is not one's wish," said Joseph Mulinde, leader of Migwani community youth group. He was speaking yesterday during a visit to AIC Migwani School for Disabled attended by 80 members of the group.
