Don’t Deny Coronavirus Relief to the Disabled

Target: Hamad Hasan, Lebanon’s Minister of Health

Goal: Grant equal healthcare and education access to the disabled population during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lebanon’s disabled population is being swiftly overlooked in the nation’s battle against the coronavirus. Disabled men, women, and children have little access to healthcare, education, or informational services. Sign the petition to demand that the nation’s most at-risk population be protected.

Since the nation began its fight against coronavirus, activists have spoken out against the blatant disregard for the nation’s disabled citizens. Children with disabilities do not have equal access to remote education. People with disabilities are unable to leave their homes and access life-saving medication during the nation’s lockdown. Meanwhile, government resources are not accessible due to a lack of sign language, closed captioning, and Braille.

The government should be granting equal access to healthcare and education for all citizens. Sign the petition to join the hundreds of activists demanding that COVID-19 relief efforts be expanded to the nation’s disabled community.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Hasan,

Your nation has done much good in the fight against coronavirus by distributing information and shutting down bustling centers. But one large population has been overlooked. Lebanon’s disabled community has little access to remote education, healthcare, or informational resources. Their lives have been put at risk.

Please do not ignore the disabled community in your battle against COVID-19. Ensure there is equal access to healthcare and educational resources. Utilize sign language, closed captioning, and Braille to ensure that citizens are getting the live-saving information they need.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is what would happen to the USA if we become a socialist country.
