“Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World”
Today marks the annual 24th anniversary of International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD). This is a day You First celebrate and cherish daily with our clients. This day aims to increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability while celebrating their achievements and contributions to our world and our society.
This years theme is “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World” where we attempt to create a COVID-norm in these unprecedented times. This is the time to do the things we once enjoyed; which feels like a lifetime ago. Where we enjoy life and what it has to offer, never take anything for granted and hold our loved ones closer than ever before.
This is also the time to celebrate achievements, especially those made throughout COVID. Survival of this year is the achievement most worthy of the highest praise. We did it! We were strong! And we came out the other side stronger, more grateful and more understanding.
Here at You First, we say congratulations and well done!
We will see you soon!
