People with disabilities in countries such as Thailand are often doubly disadvantaged, both by poverty and social and economic exclusion. Overcoming these obstacles is often challenging for adults and children with disabilities. Physical, cultural and economic barriers are not easy easily broken down, and beliefs and attitudes that marginalize or ignore people’s diverse needs and skills are difficult to change. For our part, Camillian Home takes a leadership role in promoting sustainable development and inclusion through advocacy and practical ‘on the ground’ action.
