The municipal People’s Committee has just announced a plan to develop role and responsibility of all sectors and unions in carrying out activities to help people with disabilities.
Moreover,  relevant agencies should improve disabled people's access to creational, leisure and sporting activities.
The highlight of the plan is to increase grants for people with disabilities. Additionally, the city has developed policies to add more disabled people in the city’s social security. Special people will get facilitation to policies of education, vocational training, employment, credit, recreation, travel and sports.
Last but not least, the city will check essential infrastructure to suit disabled people.
