The Catholic Bishop of Wa, Most Reverend Paul Bemile, has said the quality of life of any community is measured by its commitment to assist the weak and needy members of society.

He said people with disability must be supported to participate in social life and be helped to fulfil their physical, psychological and spiritual potentials.

Bishop Bemile said this when he cut the sod for work to begin on a 350,000 Euro school project for the mentally and physically challenged children at Loho near Wa in the Upper West region. It is to serve children from the Upper West, Upper East, Northern and Brong Ahafo Regions.

Equal Opportunity Fund, a Netherlands Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) is providing the financial assistance to construct the school.

Bishop Bemile said it was only by recognizing the rights of the weakest members of society that the country could be seen to be practicing justice, charity and equity.

He said there was a subtle form of discrimination in policies and educational projects through the proposal of lifestyles and objectives that did not correspond to the reality of disabled persons.
