The third of December, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, is a pretext to protect the rights of people who make at least 15% of the world's population and seek to empower and enjoy equal opportunities to live and participate effectively in various social fields. The rights that have been neglected in many places of the world for a variety of reasons, and lead to loss of opportunity, poverty and deprivation, loss of talent, and increased material and spiritual costs.
In our beloved country, Iran, despite the adoption of relatively practical laws such as the "Law on the Protection of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities" which was achieved with the aim of reducing life pain and providing relative welfare for this group and the efforts of social activists and NGOs has unfortunately no outcome. The lack of legal credits is an excuse for the government to turn this law into an inefficient and weak law in removing the existing obstacles and raise a very key question in the minds of the large community of disabled people in the country: “in the muzzle of neglecting of whom the concerns of the disabled are missed?

2. Fundamental revision of the law on the formation of the Welfare Organization and decisive decisions at the level of the Cabinet in order to form or designate a specialized institution to provide services to the disabled or reduce the diversity and scope of duties and responsibilities of the Welfare Organization that includes a wide range of social sufferers. Due to the volume of social problems and difficulties, it does not have the legal power, specialized capacity and the necessary and sufficient capacity to meet the demands of the disabled.
