Many activities such as meetings, a fair, job exchange and art performance for people with disabilities will be held on November 30 on the occasion of the International Day of People with Disability.

The activities, to be organised by the Vietnam Federation on Disability (VFD) in coordination with the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), will call for support from local and international organisations and individuals to facilitate the equal participation of people with disabilities in socio-economic activities.

The fair and job exchange, with the participation of about 30 recruitment agencies, will introduce products and services for disabled people.

The activities are expected to receive 2,000 people with disabilities. The VFD will award campaign medals for international and non-governmental organisations actively supporting Vietnamese people with disabilities.

The VFD, which was established in October 2012, is implementing several comprehensive projects and programmes to support organisations working with disabled people as well as creating favourable conditions for them to integrate into the community.-VNA
