“El-Wedad Society for Community Rehabilitation organized the initiative “Promoting the right of persons with disabilities to participate in sports”

In collaboration with Deir Al Balah Association for  the handicapped Rehabilitation, El-Wedad Society organized an  initiative entitled “Promoting the Right of the handicapped to Participate in Sports”.

This is considered as a paradigm shift in the promotion of the handicapped rights in which a basketball match was held between two teams of them as a kind of motivation and a good start to activate such kind of activities. A memorandum of understanding was signed between El-Wedad and Deir Al Balah Association to support the participation of the handicapped in athletic activities, to build relations with the associations and institutions concerned about those people, and to empower them preserving the rights of this significant part of the society.

This initiative is part of ” Providing Youth with a Safe Environment in The Gaza Strip” program, funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).
