(Dunya News) – Physical disability is a natural impairment, but if overcome with determination and strength, it can never be a hindrance to success. One such festival was recently held in Peshawar where people were seen conquering any disability that stood in their way to achieve more.

Organised by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Friends of Paraplegics, more than 400 disabled persons from all across the province participated in the Ability Sports Festival.

Demonstrating their skills, the participants along with stalls by different organisations working for the welfare of disabled people, added to the colours of the festival.
