Upholding the human rights of people who have an intellectual disability in Ukraine

Cheeverstown as a community of people who support people with disability also show support for people with disability in Ukraine. During war we do know that people with disability will face a disproportionate risk of abandonment with little access to safety and support. These are the people who won't be able to access underground shelter from the bombing and are unlikely to make it the train station for evacuation. There are a number of groups who are reminding the world players in this conflict to ensure the protection and safety of persons with disabilities in Ukraine under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
