Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic will benefit from a special fund of the UN Convention for Persons with Disabilities for the first time, UN Development Program (UNDP) local representative Juliana Mermet revealed Wed.

Speaking to deliver the stamp of Good Inclusive Practices for People with Disabilities “RD Includes” with 53 entities hosted by the National Disability Council, Mermet said they’ll work three vital modules including the problems that the disabled have to face
