Disabled individuals in Nepal are ignored, neglected and forced to live in dark rooms, because most of the family members of disabled individuals feel shame at having lost the prestige due to them in the community. As a result, they are dying in the same room or bed where they were born. In Nepal, disability is regarded as a form of punishment given by the god. Having a disabled member in the family affects the social reputation and relations of the whole family. The social physical structure is not accessible to PWDs and they are denied basic human rights i.e. education, health care, employment etc. Persons with disabilities in Nepal live in a state of neglect and humiliations. Estimates of total populations in Nepal vary.
Volunteer Society Nepal has established a center for physically and intellectually disabled Children. Our Center is located in Baneshwor Kathmandu which has 15 children.The children have various types of problems. These ignored and neglected disabled individuals have been receiving special education and physiotherapy services. As these children are discriminated with food at the family, these children are also provided fresh vegetables, fruits and milk on a daily basis.
VSN organizes different activities for the children at our disabled centre. With our overseas volunteers Kylie Ann Newburn , Kamille De Backer and Simon De Backer visit to fun park was arranged. The children had a fun and got new experience. VSN would to thank its volunteers for organizing such an outstanding program from these children
