A functional rehabilitation programme funded by the German organisation, Caritas, has helped disabled people in central Quang Tri province integrate into the community.
The VND12 billion (US$570,000) programme has provided functional rehabilitation for 540 disabled people in 20 wards and communes in Dong Ha city and Gio Linh and Cam Lo districts.
The programme has daily sent 30 instructors to households to guide them in how to care for and help the disabled undertake an exercise programme.
Annually, it has opened training courses on basic knowledge of health care and functional rehabilitation for the disabled.
Quang Tri province is now home to more than 6,000 disabled children.
