With no accurate statistics available on the number of people with disabilities, based on reports nearly two million of Afghanistan's population are suffering from some sort of disability.
AIGRC head, Sima Samar mentioned the importance of surveying disabled communities: "I think the types of disabilities, which are very important, should be mentioned in the surveys on persons with disabilities," Samar insisted. "First we need to know about the type of disabilities and then provide the jobs they can carry out."
