Some cultures hold false and harmful traditional beliefs about people with disabilities. These misconceptions lead to discriminatory attitudes and behaviors while reinforcing structural barriers that exclude people with disabilities and deny them their rights.
To help tear down these societal barriers, CURE works to raise awareness and advocate for people with disabilities. We educate the public on the rights of people with disabilities and mobilize their support. In partnership with local governments, non-governmental organizations, disabled person organizations, and national church networks, we utilize opportunities at mobile clinics and outreach events to train communities to care for people with disabilities.
