Children with disabilities

Children are the most affected when disabled. Their inability to understand why they are not like other children makes it even harder. This leaves them stressed and seriously disturbed. They are exposed to health hazards for it is impossible for them to tend to their basic hygiene. It becomes worse when they are neglected by the society. Nobody is there to help them in basic human needs like visiting the toilet, bathing and eating. This exposes them to the dangers of malnutrition and contracting diseases. Some parents refuse to accept that their children are disabled making them disown them for fear of the ‘burden’ of tending to this child who needs special and extra care.
