CABARET, Ouest, HT (sentinel.ht) – The presumptive First Lady-elect Martine Moïse visited the village of Lévêque in the commune of Cabaret, Saturday, December 3. It is unique among Haiti’s villages with more than 3,000 disabled persons.
The visit to Cabaret came on the occasion of the International Day of Disabled Persons. The Moïse campaign called on supporters to take the opportunity of the day “to discuss the situation of handicapped persons and look for ways social barriers that hinder inclusion can be overcome”.
Mrs. Moïse issued a statement in Creole via her Facebook. In it she said:
“Respect for the rights of handicapped persons is not the affairs of the handicapped only, but an issue for all of us. For the International Day of Disabled Persons I visited a community in Cabaret that has roughly 3,000 disabled persons residing there. We discussed ideas on all that could help them live better in a more inclusive society. No one should be left out. Everyone should be included.”
