Disabled citizens appeal to the government for help

A group of disabled people held a protest rally in front of the Cabinet Office on June 4, appealing to the government to provide them with immediate aid and halt restrictions on the support currently being received by organisations for the disabled. “The government does not see us, the government does not hear us, the government does not understand us and remains distant from us,” said the chairman of the National Council of Disabled Citizens in Slovakia (NROZP), Branislav Mamojka. According to him, his organisation has no money for its day-to-day operations and if the current situation continues, many organisations in Slovakia will have stop functioning. He says the first of these will be the NROZP, which is one of 27 organisations of its kind in Europe. SITA
