World Disability Day is a day to raise public awareness, understanding and acceptance of disabled persons and celebrate their contributions and achievements. It also aims to mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of people with disabilities. Rural Metro acknowledges that it is only through our differences that we are able to unite in strength and support. We value you and we are inspired by you! You have shown us that nothing is impossible and therefore you deserve to be celebrated!

“My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically.” – Stephen Hawking
