The one-stop shop dedicated to disability was inaugurated this morning in the premises of the Casa la Rosa in Borgo Maggiore. A goal reached not by chance on the day, December 3, the date on which the International Day of Persons with Disabilities is celebrated all over the world, established by the United Nations in 1981 precisely to know awareness towards understanding the problems related to disability and to engage the various countries in guaranteeing the dignity, rights and well-being of all people connected to this type of dynamics. The new “Disability Area” was created and managed by the Disability and Residential Assistance Service and was created to inform, support and protect people with disabilities and their families, with a view to achieving autonomy and social inclusion of the person with disability. The task of the new “Disability Area” desk is to inform all San Marino citizens who request it about their rights, benefits, and methods of accessing the services and resources available in the area for personal and family needs. All this with a view to promoting integration between the various services and associations operating at various levels in the area. The inauguration was attended by the Administrative Director of the ISS Marcello Forcellini, Dr. Francesca Civerchia, head of the disability and residential assistance service and Patrizia Gallo representing the UN CSD Commission. “I am pleased to reach this important milestone today – commented Dr. Civerchia – thanks to the work and constant dialogue with the Secretariat of State for Health and the general direction of the ISS. A space dedicated to all those people who need to have an organic response for any type of information relating to the world of disability, in particular on active services and facilities, requests for the removal of architectural barriers, the contacts of associations that for various reasons on the territory. We wanted to give a structured response to all those needs that the citizens of San Marino had presented on several occasions, also through various requests by arengo “. “This is a first step, but the work certainly does not end here – the comment of the Secretary of State Roberto Ciavatta -. Now, through the technical table that the Secretariat of State has prepared and coordinated together with the Social Security Institute, we will try to speed up the regulatory work necessary for concrete responses to the needs of our citizens. Let me also praise, in this sense, the project presented by the Direction of the Elementary Schools, in particular in the figure of the Director Arianna Scarpellini, which involves the reuse of Lego bricks donated by the ramps that go to break down the architectural barriers, which are still too present in the structures. of our territory “.
