War and violence is one of the factors causing disability. During wars most people sustain permanent disabilities, whiles persons with disability may sustain severe injuries or even lose their lives. It is for this reason that H4P organized the “Ghana For Peace Summit” aimed at advocating for peace from the perspective of the disability community.
The Ghana for Peace Summit was held on Wednesday, 21st September 2016 at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel with the theme: “The Disability Community and the Need for Peace”.
Mrs. Gloria Nutakor, the Coordinator of the Gender and Disability Desk of the Electoral Commission, stated at the summit that, the Electoral Commission had put structures in place to ensure that persons with disability will not be disenfranchised during the December 7 polls.
