Tripoli’s municipal council approved to build a playground for children with special needs. The park will be equipped with games that all children can enjoy, whether they are disabled or not. The playground will provide a safe space where kids can socialize. The accessible playground equipment will offer benefits for all children to make sure no one is left out. Being a person with special needs is a challenge in Lebanon. Public transportation and the majority of buildings are not wheelchair-accessible. Also, finding a job is hard. It’s nice to see small steps being taken to make the lives of people with disabilities easier. We’re waiting for the day when the Lebanese society becomes fully inclusive.
