The rights of disabled people is an issue which has been at the heart of many meetings held by the Egyptian National Commission on Human Rights which I have the honour to preside. In accordance with the importance we attach to the subject, we have published our annual report on the protection of human rights in Egypt in Braille, and we are planning to hold a meeting with non-sighted people in the next few months, in order to listen to their feedback on this document. Your plan to launch an Internet site, (www.ehandicapworldrecords.org) dedicated to the achievements of disabled people throughout the world, is therefore of the utmost interest to us in our efforts to help the disabled. In the name of the Egyptian National Commission on Human Rights, and on my own behalf, I would like to congratulate you and to thank you for this magnificent initiative.
Former Secretary General of the United Nations
