Ms. Rahat Shrif
I congratulate to NFWWD for launching its website. We had a very nice meeting in Karachi in 2011 with NFWWD chairpersons Ms. Abia. We are willing to collaborate with NFWWD for the empowerment of WWD, in future.
Women who are Deaf face too much difficulty because of communication barrier, it keep us back and unable to participate fully. There are only few trained interpreter and usually we do not have access to interpreter due to lack of funding.
We hope to work with NFWWD to improve the situation of women with disability and to ensure their inclusion in mainstream society and as well as in disability movement, equally.
