Creating Beautiful, Bespoke Accessible Kitchens For People With Disabilities
This year, International Day of Persons with Disabilities is highlighting “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World Disability inclusion is an essential condition to upholding human rights”.
The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was started by the United Nations General Assembly in 1992. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
