International Day of People with Disability
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is held on 3 December each year. IDPwD is a United Nations sanctioned day that is celebrated internationally. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
The theme for this year was “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World”. Covid-19 impacted on the ability to hold public events and award ceremonies, so IDPwd made some changes to how everyone could celebrate. This year was promoted through a digital, online campaign through their website and social media channels. Here at Orana, we spread the word to mark this significant day to celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.
What a terrific opportunity it was for all of us to join together and celebrate this day and raise awareness among the wider community via digital means. Orana recognises and encourages support for the dignity, rights and well-being of all people living with disability celebrating their achievements and contributions to society.
We joined the celebration by sending out an email blast to all locations inviting clients, employees and staff to get involved by asking the question “what does International Day of People with Disability mean to you?”
Please watch the video created especially for this day below: Our employees were asked “what does International Day of People with Disability mean to you?”
