Promoting Inclusion: Protecting the Vulnerable

For his December prayer intention, Pope Francis has called for prayers for those with disabilities: “Let us pray that people with disabilities may be at the center of attention in society, and that institutions offer inclusion programs that enhance their active participation.”

Promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities is a long-standing priority for CNEWA, which has a wide range of programs that provide support, care and joyful experiences to people with disabilities. In line with Pope Francis’ prayer intention, we will share a feature video from the ONE magazine archive that highlights this mission each Thursday through December.

Below is a video that was produced to accompany ONE’s March 2021 story, “Being Family to Each Other.”

A lack of residences and facilities for individuals with special needs in Egypt leaves the vulnerable population at risk. Our Lady of Peace House in Cairo serves people with developmental and physical challenges by providing specially designed classrooms and programs like speech therapy and skills workshops.
