PNGO Rehabilitation Sector Produces short film: Building back After COIVD

The Palestinian Network of NGOs (PNGO) produced a short film about two women with physical and visual disabilities. The film expresses the idea of emphasizing the fulfilment of persons with disabilities rights and to shed light on their suffering, women, in light of the spread of the Corona pandemic.

Wafa, a paralyzed young lady, starred the first story as a bookstore owner, which was her only source of income. However, with the outbreak of COVID, her bookshop was closed, and her psychological, social, and economic situation changed. She later moved her bookshop tools to her home and started working there.

The second story is about Iman, who works in an international institution and suffers from visual impairment. As she stopped working due to the spreading pandemic, she was unable to get medical treatment from health centers. Nevertheless, she did not succumb to her reality, so she worked remotely and began to buy medicine at her own expense.

The film was released on the International Day of Disabled Persons, December 10, to point out, for four minutes, facts about PwDs. The effort exerted in this film comes within the framework of the Network's rehabilitation sector to demand the official authorities to enforce the rights of persons with disabilities, including making the disabled card, which guarantees them a package of basic services.
