Burgas/Varna. Parents of children with disabilities are protesting in Burgas and Varna, in support of the protest in Sofia, Focus Radio has reported. They said the protests would continue indefinitely until their demands were fulfilled.
“We want our children to become visible to the politicians,” Milena Raykova, an organiser in Burgas and mother of a child with Down syndrome, said during the protest. “I also have an elder daughter who is involved by accident in this difficult everyday life and I want to prevent her from one day automatically becoming her sister’s sitter. With the current system, this is inevitable,” the woman said, adding that it was a problem for the whole of society.
Among other demands, they want a detailed register of people with disabilities, allowances of at least two minimum wages and a revision of work disability assessment, with a lifelong term for the illnesses by which one’s condition is not expected to improve.
