50 Years Against Discrimination

Yesterday, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa attended the anniversary celebrations of the Ligue Luxembourgeoise pour le Secours aux Enfants, aux Adolescents et aux Adultes mentalement ou cérébralement handicapés or more simply Ligue HMC. Since 50 years the organisation now fights against all forms of discrimination against persons with disabilities. During these years they especially raised awareness through counselling and training structures. 

Apart from cutting the cake, the Grand Duchess and the other guests were also introduced to a new book called "Step by Step" that outlines both the activities of the Ligue HMC as well as personal reports of disabled people. Also, a convention between the organisation and the city of Luxembourg was signed about jobs for people with disabilities.
