Afghanistan's Forgotten Children
Produced by: Eric Beauchemin
Disabled people in Afghanistan have tended to be hidden by their families. They have been regarded as a source of shame. But Afghan society is beginning to change its attitudes, if only because so many people have become disabled or lost limbs over the past two decades of war. The Comprehensive Disabled Afghan Programme assists about 20,000 disabled people a year. The group's rehabilitation workers, who are volunteers and paid workers, identify disabled people, decide what kind of help can be offered and then arrange for services such as orthopedic workshops, physiotherapy, job placement, micro-credit, job training and integrating disabled children in schools. Produced by Eric Beauchemin of Radio Netherlands.
