Mizoram Churches Yet To Make Facilities For Disabled

Aizawl, Dec 4 : Mizoram Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities B Sairengpuii today lamented that while different denominations constructed big and expensive churches, they were yet to create facilities for people with disabilities in the churches.

Addressing a function here on the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Sairengpuii said that there should be facilities in churches and other public places for people on wheelchairs, users of rolators and clutches like ramps and railings.

The function was jointly organised by the state Social Welfare department, the SSA state mission, Health Services, Hospital and Medical Education departments and NIOH North East Regional Centre.

She added that the schemes meant for people with disabilities were being implemented by the Social Welfare department, which was designated as the nodal department by the government.
