International Day of People with Disability

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations sanctioned day that is observed worldwide December 3rd. It aims to raise increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability, as well as to recognise and celebrate their accomplishments and contributions.

Each year the UN announces a theme to observe for International Day of People with Disability. The annual theme provides an overarching focus on how society can strive for inclusivity through the removal of physical, technological and attitudinal barriers for people with disability. The theme for this year is ‘Leadership and Participation of persons with disability toward an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-COVID-19 world.’

People in Orana celebrated IDPwD in a variety of ways. To commemorate the day, Orana’s Ridleyton site hosted a morning tea, while Whyalla staff and clients joined local community organisations for a fun day in the Ada Ryan Gardens.

Clients from Orana Port Pirie took part in a variety of community activities to commemorate the occasion. The event, which was organised by the Port Pirie Regional Council and held at Memorial Oval, brought people from all over the community together.

There were a variety of activities available, and clients participated in lawn bowls, croquet, and soccer, among others. The Savoy Soccer Club, the South Australian Football League, the South Australian Cricket Association, the Port Pirie lawn bowls and croquet club, the Special Olympics SAPOL, the South Australian Amateur Sports Association, and MADEC all contributed to the event’s success.
