Gaza – Press House
On Thursday, January 4, 2021, Press House – Palestine (BAS) and Save Youth Future Society organized an awareness workshop on the topic of “Terminologies for People with Disabilities.”
With consideration of high preventive measures to prevent the outbreak of COVID19, Mr. Mohammed Abu-Kumail, an activist for people with Disabilities, and a group of journalists and media graduates (women and men) Participated in the workshop.
Mr. Mohammed Abu-Kumail reviewed the most common mistakes used in media to talk about issues related to people with disabilities. He indicated that the community must give more attention for people with disabilities, especially journalists (women and men) because their message reaches all the segments of society. He added that the vision toward people with disabilities has improved recently despite the urgent need to focus more on treating many other persons with disabilities’ problems.
