Few facilities that are adapted to people with disabilities


There are few facilities in the Brčko district that are suitable for people in wheelchairs, and there are not enough access ramps at pedestrian crossings in the city center, said the president of the Citizens’ Association “Vjera i Nada” Nataša Damjanović on the occasion International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Damjanović stressed that it is necessary to provide home visits by a physiotherapist at least twice a week to these persons, especially those with difficulty moving and immobile, which will be one of their requests to the city and the Public Health Institution.

“Immobile people are always in the same position, and with adequate exercises with a physiotherapist, our organs will function better. That’s why it’s very important to us, as well as going to the spa twice a year. Now we currently have the right to spa treatment once a year,” said Damjanović.

When it comes to the employment of people with disabilities, Damjanović emphasized that it is necessary to provide them with work from home as well as reduced working hours.

“We hope that the cooperation with the community in which we live will be better from year to year. So far, we have managed to initiate some things together, but we need to work on it even better and continuously,” Damjanović accentuated.

Citizens’ association “Vjera i nada” was founded less than two months ago, after the dystrophy association was shut down. It gathers patients with muscular dystrophy, muscular atrophy and related muscular and neuromuscular diseases in the district. There are currently 12 members.
