VARIOUS artwork displayed at the Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons Open Day today reflects the talents and abilities of people with disability in Labasa.

These were the words of FNCDP executive officer Kaushilya Devi as their students showcased their handicraft work at the institution.

“We need to create awareness to tell society about the work done by disabled people and this is why we have an annual open day,” Ms Devi said.

“This open day is to also tell communities that we have a centre and facilities that cater for disabled people so families with disabled members can bring their loved ones here to learn basic skills to support themselves in life.

“This is very important so we teach and train our students ensuring that their abilities are shown through their handicraft and art work.”

The handicraft work included interior decorations, towel holders, cushion and couch covers.
