In Malysia, there is an organization that helps the disabled people to fit into the society by producing handmade crafts. Disabled people do not like sympathy or looked down by the public. So in order to adapt and help them to generate income, they are taught by the volunteers to weave rattan baskets, laundry baskets, tailor clothes, book binding and many more. With these handmade craft talents, the disables received orders from the tourists who visited the centre. The tourists bought the handmade gifts in bulk orders, creating great opportunities for the disables to survive. Does your country government helps the disables? Photo taken by peachpurple

Each local government has projects for disabled people. Usually they are taught how to do handmade crafts. The blinds are given free massage education and the government gives them a job.
