At the beginning of the event, Nasser Jaber, director of BSCD, stressed the importance of such activities and urged the General Union of Persons with Disabilities (GUPWDs)- Bethlehem Branch and persons with disabilities to regularly participate and encourage their peers to take part in similar activities.
