Chinese New Year Party
YB Chow Kon Yeow, who handles matters related to state local government pointed out that 2 months ago, YB Yap Soo Huey, who injured her leg due to uneven road surface and later discarded her clutches after using them for a period of time, proposed to the state government while attending a meeting, to upgrade the disabled friendly facilities in order to ensure the smooth movement of the disabled.
YB Chow said that YB Yap Soo Huey understood very well the problems being faced by the disabled persons during the 2 months period while using clutches. Therefore he immediately agreed to YB Yap Soo Huey in leading the related committee, to ensure that the disabled friendly facilities in the state are up to the international standard.
While attending the Chinese New Year Party on Thursday organized by the Society of Disabled Persons Penang (SDPP), YB Chow said that he realized the development of the disabled friendly facilities in the state is slow, with limited progress, but the Penang Island City Council would try its best to improve the disabled friendly facilities.
He praised SDPP in putting in its best effort to fight for the rights of the disabled, also to pursue actively the policies and benefits for the disabled until bearing fruits by uniting the forces of the disabled.
Teh Lay Kuan, president of SDPP, pointed out that even though some of the Rapid Penang buses are disabled friendly, however majority of the bus stations and the accessibility routes leading to the bus station to catch a bus are not so disabled friendly yet.
She said that those disabled who have their own means of transportation, face another set of problems. These include the parking lots reserved for the disabled are frequently occupied by normal able persons, certain buildings or shops are without ramps for them to go inside those places, not all the places are equipped with disabled friendly toilets for them and so on.
She said that due to the above factors, some of the disabled would rather stay at home or refrain from going out. She continued to say that in order to address this situation, the cooperation of all parties are needed.
She urged all the authorities concerned, the private sectors and the general public to play their respective roles within their capacities in order to help the disable in leading a normal and happy life as far as possible.
