Combined Disabilities Association

Combined Disabilities Association is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, which was formed in 1978 and officially launched in 1981, during the international year of persons with disabilities (IYDP) – its main focus is advocacy. This organization was born out of a need to have a voice of our own. The board of Directors consists of persons who are physically disabled, blind and deaf, intellectually impaired, hearing impaired as well as non disabled individuals who may be co-opted.)
