The struggle of the disabled in Israel has been going on for a long time, and we still haven't paid. The disabled continue to fight for their rights, and for all the help and support they need to be part of society and enjoy all their rights like any other Israeli citizen.
In the last decade, there have been some important advances in the struggle of the disabled in Israel. For example, a number of organizations have been founded that try to help the disabled in exercising their rights in front of the authorities in the State of Israel.
Also, important legislations were passed in the field of the disabled in Israel, such as the enactment of a law that somewhat improved the amount of money we receive every month, as well as the enactment of the Law of Rights for People with Disabilities. These legislations promote the rights and status of the disabled, and prove that the state takes the struggle of the disabled seriously.
However, there is still much to do. The disabled still encounter many limitations and challenges on a daily basis, and they often lack the tools and opportunities they need to be part of Israeli society. Despite the existing advances, the disabled still encounter difficulties in obtaining adapted access to education, employment, health services and daily life.
For example, the disabled can encounter difficulties in gaining access to the public and public transportation, so that each of their activities will have a higher financial cost than the activity of a non-disabled citizen. Also, they can receive limited educational training, so getting a job in the field can be more difficult for them. Also, the disabled can be injured in body parts that they need to perform daily tasks, and therefore need additional help to perform the daily function properly.
To address these challenges, the state should provide more resources and support to those who need it, and promote information and laws related to the disabled and their rights. The state should act to promote equality and access for every Israeli citizen, and help the disabled to be part of it.
We, as disabled people who try to promote these issues, need more support and assistance.
