Disabled Children in India “Invisible”
by Letters 4 the Damned
BANGLADESH — More than 26.8 million people in India live with disabilities. In a country such as India, where survival depends largely on your ability to work, often with disability comes poverty. This combination can be devastating, and the issue is complicated further by its prevalence and regular occurrence.
With approximately 2.2 percent of the total population of India having a disability, the issue simply does not receive the attention it should. This creates a social phenomenon in which disabled children in India become “invisible.”
