Women of Substance





Thank you Maafanta and Hellogambia

This is to say a big thank you to ‘Maafanta’ and ‘Hello Gambia’ for publishing my article on Autism. I also thank your readers who contributed through their comments. The response was overwhelming. It was heartbreaking though for me to learn that there were quite a number of families in the same situation, who suffered in silence on this matter. I am therefore pleased that the article has raised some level of awareness about disability in our society.

I believe collectively we can all do our bit to raise awareness of disability in our society and culture. This would, I hope, create a more tolerant and inclusive society in which all disable children are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential ‘In Shaa ALLAH.
