Tomorrow, the Western Cape Departments of Human Settlements and Social Development, together with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC), will brief media on their plans to improve Human Rights for people with disabilities and special needs.
The briefing follows outcomes of a meeting held recently between the departments and SAHRC to discuss the matter and collaborate their efforts to strengthen and improve Human Rights for the most vulnerable in our society.
