United Commercial Bank Limited (UCBL) Chairman Rukhmila Zaman said people's attitudes towards people with disabilities have changed a lot. Now they are considered part of society. Not only that, many individuals and institutions of the society have come forward in their development.

In addition, at the 13th International Women's SME Trade Fair Bangladesh, amusement park, free lunch, along with gift items, participation in sports was offered for the children.
