MALC held a recreation day for persons with disabilities under BMZ project.
Through the support of BMZ, Germany, a Recreation Day was organized at Karachi Zoo for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs). The purpose of the event was to promote Inclusive Development for PwDs and to provide them with an opportunity to enjoy their lives. Around 350 PwDs along with their care-takers attended the occasion. It was a fun-filled day with musical entertainment, where PwDs not only saw the various animals at the zoo, but participated in the event through their various performances; reciting, singing, dancing and playing. Mr. Mervyn Lobo, CEO-MALC also attended the event and spoke about Dr. Ruth Pfau’s contribution and efforts in establishing the Community Based Inclusive Development (CBID) program in MALC. We are also grateful to Karachi Zoo Administration for providing free of charge entry and the finest place to conduct the event.
