May 4 — The St. Kitts Nevis Association of Persons with Disabilities and the St. Kitts Society for the Blind celebrates the third annual disability awareness month this May 2010. The theme for this year is: “Accessibility: Creating a more inclusive Nation”. There are several activities to mark the occasion. On the first of May the Minister with responsibility for Health, the Honourable Marcella Liburd would have opened the month of activities with an address to the Federation. In addition, there will be a church service at the Seventh Day Adventist Church on Saturday May 8, 2010. This first two week of the month we will be visiting various schools throughout the island speaking to the students. The speakers for these visits will be Mr. Anthony Mills, President of the St. Kitts Nevis Association of Person with Disabilities and Mr. Rockliffe Bowen, President of St. Kitts Society for the Blind. On Tuesday, May 4, the Association will make a visit to the Verchilds High School. On Wednesday, May 5, the Association will visit the Irish Town Primary School. On Thursday, May 6, the Association will be visiting the Beach Allen Primary School. These visits are expected to sensitize the students and By extension the community to the world of persons living with disabilities. Disability awareness month is our nationwide campaign to increase awareness of and support for the rights and dignity of persons with disabilities, in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. We take this opportunity to invite the media to partner with us and help us spread the message to the wider community By covering and reporting on as many of our activities as possible as we celebrate our third annual disability month this year May 2010.
