Date: 5 November 2020
Our online book launch and ceremony of ’Life Stories of Caregivers with Disabilities’was held on 5th November 2020. Supported by Women’s Commission, women with disabilities can tell, share and discuss their stories via PhotoVoice so that audiences can learn and understand the needs and difficulties of carers with disabilities. After training for several months, the Hong Kong Association for Women with Disabilities finally selected twelve unique life stories. To raise the awareness of women with disabilities and promote community education, our photographer took these twelve stories as the framework for a documentary and published them as a photo book.
