Brisk activities are conducted to protect persons with disabilities by the Central Committee of the Korean Federation for the Protection of the Disabled.
The federation now works to bring up more than 40 children, who have been diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy and hypacusia and registered at the Korean Rehabilitation Centre for Children with Disabilities, and to help them recover from the illnesses. The centre is run in the form of a weekly kindergarten and ensures that their daily life becomes the process of rehabilitation.
It developed smartphone apps helpful for the recovery of children’s diseases, thereby contributing to kindergarten and family education.
The vocational school for the disabled is actively operative to teach them technologies related to haircut, beauty art, clothing, carpentry, cooking and computer according to their wishes.
Through lectures given by competent teachers and sufficient practices, they cultivate their talents with confidence in the future.
The federation scrupulously organizes work with officials of the Korean Sports Association of the Disabled so that the disabled who hope to take part in the training of table-tennis, badminton, weightlifting, swimming and other sporting events can participate in the training while receiving the regular treatment for recovery at the Munsu Rehabilitation Clinic.
The Korean Art Association of the Disabled makes sure that they take part in artistic group activities including instrumental music, vocal music and dancing in conformity with their hopes.
“They give excellent artistic performances on different occasions like the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, and a video showing their happy looks entitled “Persons with disabilities give artistic performance” will soon be released,” said Cha Hyok, secretary general of the association.
The federation also offers a free taxi service for the convenience of the disabled.
The e-dictionary of sign language, developed by the information technology company for the disabled, is sought-after among users, and the Web electronic conference system 1.0 was given IT prize at the national exhibition of IT achievements-2021.
