ENIL has received an email from a parent of a child with disabilities who has raised concerns about violations of the rights of people with disabilities in Croatia. He along with other parents is calling on people to stop tolerating violations of human rights, for example the right to a decent and dignified life.
In this letter, he outlines the economic situation of people with disabilities in Croatia and claims that these people are already vulnerable in society and are disproportionately affected by poverty already. He argues that this is in violation of their economic, social and cultural rights.
In this letter, he calls on people to work towards the improvement of the lives of children with disabilities. With this protest he wishes to compel the Croatian government and its officials to realise that all humans are equal and deserve their rights. He calls on the Croatian government to take a look at the plight of those who are living without basic human rights. He is hoping that this protest by the parents of children with disabilities will cause a snowball effect and this will a change and improve the situation of people with disabilities in Croatia.
One of his main aims is that the parents of Croatian children with disabilities show Europe and the rest of the world that Croatia is not complying with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and that all parties involved must start working together to ensure the safety and the rights of children with disabilities so that they can have happy and healthy childhoods.
