Initiative To Support Persons With Disabilities In Lebanon

"The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) are jointly launching a new initiative to support persons with disabilities and reduce their exposure to increasing vulnerabilities due to Lebanon’s manifold crises – the dwindling economy, the COVID 19 pandemic and most recently the Beirut Port explosion."

The Beirut Call for Action, launched under the initiative, will mobilize a wide partnership to ensure areas affected by a deadly recent explosion are rebuilt in ways that improve accessibility. The document can be accessed by clicking on the file below.

UNDP Regional Goodwill Ambassador Michael Haddad later completed a 4-kilometer walk to raise awareness and mobilize resources for the effort. Watch the video below.
