LETTERSĀ The government, organisations or individuals who are concerned about people with disability should try to create or consider employment opportunities for this group during the recovery MCO phase.

Earlier the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhiyiddin Yassin through the PENJANA had focused on the one-off focus on the disabled and single mothers in early June.

The financial assistance provided earlier to the disabled clearly shows that the government under the Prime Minister continues to be committed to every group of Malaysians and to ensure that every individual benefits from the economic well-being of the country.

If job opportunities for the disabled were created it would certainly help their daily lives. Efforts to create employment opportunities for the disabled should be embraced by all parties not just the federal government and state agencies.

People with disabilities, especially the blind, suffer more as their daily income has been affected by the closure of massage centre services. Perhaps, authorities or concerned people can come up with other alternatives to help them find other job opportunities.

For the visually impaired people, their situation is more difficult compared to others with disabilities. The visually impaired communities cannot generate income because the government still prohibits massage and reflexology services from operating as usual understandably because of Covid-19 spread.

However, it is still hoped that the government can create opportunities for the visually impaired community to generate income during this difficult time. It is only understandable that they too want to enjoy the same quality of life as others in these difficult circumstances.
