Specify- free medical care...

This article Portrays that North Korea views people with disabilities as a nuisance, therefore the numbers given for people with disabilities may be underestimated. Many communist states distort images or figures of aspects they see as negative. In the past they have denied the existence of disabled people in North Korea. The situation has somewhat improved since they have established a federation for their protection. Sadly as we have seen in the constitution I highly doubt this federation has much activity.

Wow thats so sad. We spent so much time talking about people having their freedom repressed, we didn't even consider the disabled who aren't getting their NEEDS met. The line in the article about the Chinese proverb indicating the need to take a single step to start a journey is true. But how can we go about finding out what type of disabilities are in need the most?
