Persons with Disabilities in Ukraine: What you can do to help
There are 2.7 million people with disabilities in Ukraine, according to the European Disability Forum, while Inclusion Europe estimates there are around 261,000 people with intellectual disabilities.
The War on Ukraine by the Russian Federation is a major threat to persons with disabilities with many of them being “left behind” as refugees flee the conflict.
This webinar, co-hosted by the European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities and the National Task Group on Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia Practices, will provide a discussion of the situation of persons with disabilities in Ukraine, including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities living at home and in institutions, as well as elderly adults. The webinar will also address the situation of persons and organizations working to receive refugees with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the countries bordering Ukraine and as well as all of Europe.
