Disabled persons lashed out at the government’s slow pace to enact potentially life-saving disabilities legislation.

The community is demanding immediate action to address longstanding issues that negatively impact their quality of life, according to Kaleisha Rolle, head secretary at the Bahamas National Council for Disability.

In an interview with The Tribune, Ms Rolle underscored the need to raise awareness throughout the country, and not only on the capital.

The stigma attached to disabled persons is further intensified by the lack of resources and infrastructure, said Ms Rolle, as she reflected on the challenges she has faced due to her physical limitations.
