LONDON- Different policies and programs were in July 2018 launched during the Global Disability Summit going down at the Olympic Park in London to help champion the rights and privileges of Persons with Disability. 

Speaking at the time, British Secretary of State for International Development Penny Mordaunt said this is the time the world must rise up to support Persons with Disabilities and the most vulnerable in the society.

“For too long, people with disabilities in the world’s poorest countries have not been able to fulfil their potential due to stigma or lack of practical support. Today, we give focus to this long neglected area,” Penny Mordaunt said.

Adding that, “This event is about all of us working together, sharing ideas and good practice to ensure that as we work towards a more prosperous world no one is left behind.”

The Global Disability Summit was organised in order to identify gaps and challenges facing Persons with Disabilities and steps various countries are taking to combat such challenges.

The UK government together with the Kenyan government have committed to seeing Persons with Disability have a better life going forward.
