Hello Friends and Colleagues,
At the request of Yuliia Sachuk, Executive Director of Fight for Right (FFR), the Global Alliance for Disaster Resource Acceleration invites you to join an update on the situation for Ukrainians with disabilities.
When: Thursday, March 10, 2022, 5pm UKR / 3pm London /10am NY [Eastern time] / 7am [Pacific Time]
Further information about speakers will be shared with registered participants.
ASL and captioning by a CART Captioner will be provided .
The agenda includes an update of the circumstances inside Ukraine for people with disabilities, and what we can do to help. We will update our efforts to support rescue, evacuation, and assistance to reach and cross borders and connect with Disability-led and other humanitarian assistance in the countries with open borders for Ukrainians as well as what we need to do for people with disabilities who have been unable to evacuate.
We are committed to leave no one behind. This is the promise of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and it is the only way to make real the aspirational guarantees of equity and justice for all.
GADRA is a collaboration between disability-led organizations, foundations, corporations, and other allies to identify local disability-led organizations and their disaster-impacted communities, then link partners to accelerate assistance and resources, both during and after disasters.
Please contact us at GADRAinfo@wid.org if you have any questions!
