Aburi urged parents holding children with disability to break the stigmatization chain.

She called for registration of unregistered PWDs to support planning.

“I appeal to the community to raise the alarm if they see parents hiding affected children. We will come, pick up the child, examine him, and provide them with the equipment he needs,” she added.
