Theressa Mentally Challenged Rehabilitation Centre Belief:

When it comes to impairment, it’s important to remember that it’s not a curse. That’s all there is to the preceding result. Disabled people are not treated as second-class fugitives. They are brothers to us. Unfortunately, despite their physical and mental disabilities, society’s contempt and victims’ neglect may work miracles for the crippled if they do not extend a permanent kind hand to humanity.
