GiftAbled presents first ever hospital to get sensitized towards disability – stepping into every person with disabilities’ shoes. We had a good participation of 16 nurses and staff and 4 doctors. The nurses shared that they had come across people with disability before, but today they understood them and their difficulties on a deeper level due to the workshop and are now confident they can help them in the right manner. The doctors are not just sensitized but are now more than happy to see their hospital being more inclusive.
