Launch of #ThisAbility Truck

Tuesday, 20 March 2018, One Utama

According to UNICEF report Childhood Disability in Malaysia: A study of knowledge, attitudes, and practices released in 2017, six in ten people surveyed say they do not have enough information about children with disabilities. The research reveals that knowledge about disability is low and that children with disabilities, their parents, and family face real stigma and discrimination at home, in schools, and other environments in Malaysia. The UNICEF #ThisAbility truck is one of the ways we are working with the private sector to spread the message of inclusion across Malaysia.

UNICEF’s #ThisAbility truck will travel across the country to promote inclusion and the rights of children with disabilities. The Truck was launched on the 20th of March 2018 at One Utama by Lisa Surihani, National Ambassador for UNICEF and Marianne Clark-Hattingh, UNICEF Representative to Malaysia.

The UNICEF #ThisAbility Truck is launched in partnership with Unicom.
