Disabled people are another section of the community who are far too neglected by the society and its various policies. Many people with disabilities live in conflict settings or in developing countries like ours, where they experience a range of barriers to education, health care and other basic services. In many countries, they are subjected to violence and discrimination. People with disabilities are also often deprived of their right to live independently, as many are locked up in institutions, shackled, or cycled through the criminal justice system. These disabilities range from autism, physical, psychosocial, visual impairment, speech disability, intellectual disability, hearing disability, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome or combinations of various disabilities. The disabilities faced by such people range from hereditary to complications faced while growing up, each of which affect adversely their everyday life and perhaps their future prospects. Finding a proper job, facing daily discrimination and exploitation are likely to divert their life into a miserable one unless proper a proper helping hand is forwarded towards them. JWF aims, with the best of its efforts, to ensure that these individuals are provided with equality and respect by the society. Our team helps to protect, promote and ensure the accomplishment of the rights of the disabled people. The members of this wing of JWF try to ensure that the disabled people are able to have a fulfilling life and enjoy all the rights any citizen of Bangladesh enjoys.
JWF works in line with The Constitution which provides basic rights to the Disabled people by providing recognition of being a citizen, right to proper health service, right to use sign/own language and communication, right to accessibility in the community, right to use accessible transportation, right to education and training, right to discrimination-free employment opportunities Another provision relating to protecting Disabled people includes Persons with Disabilities’ Rights and the Protection Act 2013.This Act is in line with the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).The Parliament members and the President of Bangladesh passed the Persons with Disabilities Rights and Protection Act 2013 on 9 October 2013. According to Clause 16.2of this act: any person, institution, authority or organization that shows any type of discrimination against persons with disabilities will likely face legal actions from any complaints from the said acts informed to the Court.
