8000 persons with a disability screened.

In December 2020,  the first screening camps were organised COVID-prove, in small groups and in the open air,  in the new municipalities of batch 1.  This time the local government took responsibility for the organisation. Persons with a disability in the villages were identified, invited to come to the camp and were screened by doctors and specialists to identify their type of disability and options for care. Also, all of them received an ID card, giving them access to government allowances.  A total of 8000 persons are screened by early February and together with them and their caretaker’s rehabilitation plans are being developed.
