Pakistani hotel introduces braille menu for blind
Islamabad: A hotel in Islamabad has introduced a menu in braille for its visually impaired guests on World Disability Day.
Serena Hotel Islamabad has become the first hotel in Pakistan to have menus in braille, Daily Times reported Saturday.
The hotel`s general manager Peter Hill said: "People with disability are denied basic rights but they are highly productive if given a chance to prove themselves.
Employers must take positive steps on this international day and give equal opportunities to them."
"Serena Hotel is the first hotel in Pakistan to launch braille menu service to serve its visually impaired," he added.
Special Talent Exchange Programme (STEP) president Atif Sheikh said: "There is a need of an inclusive society with accessibility for all - able or disabled."
"We want proper legislation for disabled people not just policies and conventions," said Sheikh.
He said almost 10 percent population of Pakistan was disabled.
