Happy #IDPD!

On 3 December it was the annual¬†International Day of People with Disabilities.¬†It’s always a huge day for us, but more so in 2018 than ever before, as it marked the fifth birthday of Sightsavers’ campaign fighting for the rights of people with disabilities.

As if that wasn’t enough, the day also brought great news about the publication of a disability strategy by the UK Department for International Development – something we’ve been calling for, with your support, over the past five years!

Take a look at how Sightsavers celebrated the day around the world:
