United Nations, New York: The US Federation for Middle East Peace President Mrs. Sally Kader is pleased to request the honor of your presence at The International Day of Persons with Disabilities Conference in the Kingdom of Bahrain on January 21 – 22, 2012.

For the first time in the Middle East, leaders across contents will discuss the inclusion of disabled persons in development in a region that has been making courageous stride towards mainstreaming disabilities.“The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities became the first new human rights treaty of the 21st century” states Mrs. Kader quoting President Obama’s recent statement. The conference will highlight this year’s theme of “Together for a Better World for All: Including persons with disabilities in development and Inclusion.”

USFMEP is concerned with the predicament of all disabled persons especially those who are disabled as a result of conflict, war and natural disaster. We see this as part of our commitment to ending the devastation of war and all its atrocities. Our president Mrs. Sally Kader affirms, “It is our intention to advance equitable development that incorporates policies and best practices of inclusion and access for all disabled persons”

The conference, organized by The USFMEP and co-sponsored by the United Nations ECOSOC, will include high level dignitaries from the United Nations as well as international experts in the field of disabilities, inclusion and accessibility. A workshop for caregivers will be offered in addition to motivational programming on creativity presented by prominent artists and sports figures. A gala event with entertainment, a children’s performance and a day of touring the country of Bahrain will conclude the program. We sincerely hope that you will be available to attend this informative and enlightening event.
