According to WHO report “Total population of PWDs (5.035 million) in Pakistan is astonishingly more than the population of any of the individual countries population of Norway, New Zealand, Lebanon or Kuwait. From within Pakistan, PWDs population is more than the combined population of three cities i.e. Multan, Hyderabad and Peshawar. ARPD in partnership with other associated organizations and partners frequently organize different advocacy events to aware and advocate for the rights of the persons with disabilities.
