What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?  Is Disability God’s Design?  (Part Three)

Maybe you have seen the statistics.  Have you have turned a blind eye?  Perhaps you have noticed but are crippled by “the facts.”

Ponder this with me for a moment.

  • Eighty percent of people with disabilities live in developing countries.
  • One in ten children worldwide has special needs, while one in five of the world’s poorest has special needs.
  • Special needs may cause children to suffer discrimination, abuse and exploitation.  These children are more at risk of violence.
  • There are an estimated 153 million orphans in the world today.  15 million have special needs

(UNICEF, The World  Bank, Forum on public policy, UNAIDS, WHO)
