ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: President Dr. Arif Alvi has called for community involvement to help address the issues being faced by the Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).

While chairing a follow-up on the facilitation of DAPs at Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad on Thursday, the president said that facilitation and welfare of differently-abled people (DAPs) was a great challenge that required the socially-responsible participation of all segments of society including the business community, students, and government organizations.

The meeting was attended by the Chairman CDA, and senior management of COMSATS Islamabad, NUST Islamabad, and National College of Arts (NCA) Lahore.

The meeting discussed various proposals to facilitate PWDs and make markets, buildings, and public places more accessible for them.

The departments of the architecture of COMSATS, NUST, and NCA gave presentations that suggested various solutions to make markets and buildings of F-6 Markaz, F-7 Markaz, and I-8 Markaz in Islamabad easily accessible for PWDs.

While addressing the meeting, President Arif Alvi said that DAPs faced many obstacles in their free movement that prevented them from fully participating in various social and cultural activities and urged the business community and Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry to assist in the materialization of proposals presented by the universities.

The president also asked the Chairman CDA to facilitate the Universities in finalizing the proposals.
