Qatar Is Ready to Host Fans with Disabilities for The World Cup

According to HE Maryam bint Ali bin Nasser al-Misnad, Minister of Social Development and Family, Qatar has embraced all opportunities for providing care for disabled individuals in the area and globally at all levels.

HE al-Misnad emphasized the significance of empowering people with disabilities being included in the Arab community, not excluded from it, during her chairmanship of the two-day workshop on Disability Classification in the Arab World held in Doha and organized by the Ministry of Social Development and Family in partnership with the Secretariat General of the Arab League.

However, HE al-Misnad stated, "The concrete evidence that supports our prognosis in Qatar leads us to believe that such efforts remained below expectations in the Arab framework due to a major reason embodied in the absence of policies and programs to support people with disabilities in the Arab world with a unified classification and accompanying disability, through which we can ensure inclusivity, that no one is left behind, and that our societies are capable of bearing the burden of disability

She said that Qatar is prepared to host the 4th Global Disability Summit in 2028 during her leadership of the Qatar delegation at the 15th session of the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

This program is a crucial component of the Arab Entrepreneurship Adventure, which Jordan will launch in 2025 by co-hosting with Germany the Third World Summit for Persons with Disabilities. The establishment of a unified Arab classification based on practical classification elements that go beyond the parameters set by the medical standard—rather than diminishing it, but fusing it with skills, societal, and educational standards—was advocated by HE the Minister.

She stated, "I see from my position that we have a moral responsibility today to lay this desired foundation before it becomes a professional responsibility."

The Minister stated that because this precedent is a crucial worldwide file if the Arab group is successful in overcoming the conventional classification obstacles it faces, it will lead global efforts as the first area in the globe.

Given that there are fewer than five months until the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 becomes the first Arab Mondial in history, she stressed Qatar's readiness to host guests with impairments. Adding that Qatar has been making extraordinary efforts to make the competition more accessible for those with disabilities

Numerous Mondial stadiums include sensory rooms that are particularly for individuals with disabilities, creating the ideal environment for kids with autism and neuro-behavioral disorders to take in the atmosphere of the games in a secure setting furnished with all the most cutting-edge tools and gadgets.

The Shafallah Center for Persons with Disabilities, located at Hamad International Airport, offers state-of-the-art technology as well as educational and rehabilitation tools to make sure spectators with disabilities and autism have the best possible travel experience. In addition, preparations extend to welcoming the masses from outside Qatar.
