Gala for people with disability

Bankstown’s Abrahim Darouiche is counting down the days until Thursday 6 December, when CBCity celebrates International Day of People with Disability at a gala event.

"This event means a great deal to the community as it allows people with disability to enjoy a night of entertainment, food and networking, while celebrating and promoting inclusion within the community," he said.

When Mr Darouiche was a child, he was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy, a neurological disorder which results in the progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function.

"It hasn’t stopped or kept me from doing what I want," Mr Darouiche said.

"If anything, it has made me want to live life more and do more for others, including helping to organise this gala.

"Being a part of the organising committee has given me greater confidence to be a part of the community and set even more ambitious goals for myself."

The one thing Mr Darouiche was most looking forward to most, was meeting new people and making friends.

"I really hope to see people with disability come together and celebrate inclusion of everyone, regardless of their abilities," Mr Darouiche said.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the event was going to be a night to remember.

"This event is unlike any other we’ve held before because it has been created by people with disability for people with disability, which means it caters and is tailored to their every need," Mayor Asfour said.

"It’s a privilege that our Council gets to work with people from the community every day to make our City better and the lives of people living in it."

This gala is the latest initiative as part of Council’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP). For more information, visit cb.city/diap
