Six participants visited Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare to have a lecture on “Welfare Services for Persons with Disabilities in Japan” by Mr. Akira Otuka, Special Adviser for Disability Issues. The participant from Pakistan was a bit sick, so she stayed in TIC. Other brave members experienced the packed trains and got there. I think most of jicafriends know what it means.
Mr. Otsuka gave us an outline on welfare for persons with disabilities in Japan, including the draft of “Law concerning Self-reliance Support for Persons with Disabilities.
