International Day of People with Disability: God Bless Nigeria Celebrates Ability in Disability

In line with the United Nations observance of the International Disability Day on December 3rd 2015, The God Bless Nigeria Church had a service in honour of people living with any form of disability on Sunday 6th December, 2015.

THE AIM OF THE SERVICE

God Bless Nigeria Church (GBN) used the opportunity the day offered to foster better understanding of people with disability. Issues discussed are those that bother on the rights, dignity and welfare of disabled people. The need to integrate disabled persons into every aspect of socio-economic life cannot be over-emphasized. The Deaf and Able Department of God Bless Nigeria Church comprising people who are audibly impaired had theatrical presentations at the service.

As a Church with the mandate to affect communities, GBN has over the years provided the right environment for people living with disability by making enabling platforms accessible to them at our main Church in Iponri and across the six centers in Lagos. We are calling on people across the world to identify and appreciate ability in disability. We all need to display the right attitude towards this people and jointly work towards the elimination of the various form of stigmatization that goes with disability.

This is a call on policy makers, lawmakers and the Government to work together in developing policies and practices that will strengthen integration and inclusion of people living with disability. Our goal is to help build a sustainable world for all living with disability.

As a Church, our mandate is to empower them towards the fulfillment of their divine purposes. We are calling on well meaning people around the world to support the work we are doing in empowering the Deaf and Able Community in Nigeria.
