We have also provided ventilators to various government hospitals in Punjab in collaboration with the business community, he said.

Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that I am thankful to the welfare organizations and their volunteers who risked their lives to visit the homes of poor families and provided them with rations and relief items. He said that these volunteers are our assets. Meanwhile, President Dr Arif Alvi Tuesday said that inclusive education system should be promoted to include special children in normal schooling for their effective participation in society. The inclusive education would help the special children become an important nation asset, he said and added that after getting education in normal schools, the children with disabilities could better explore themselves as per requirements. The inclusive system would enable them to get education which can help them get jobs in market as well, he added. Addressing a briefing session on the disability, organised by the Special Education and Social Welfare Departments at Governor’s House, the president said that employment quota in private sector institutions should be ensured and monitored by the authorities concerned for persons with disabilities so that they could earn with respect to fulfil their needs and feed their families. Dr Arif Alvi said that a theoretical framework to be formed to classify the disabilities as hearing, blind and physically impaired persons should be dealt differently, adding that hearing, blind and physically impaired persons could be settled in normal schools but there should be separate mechanism for people with mental/cognitive disabilities.
