Malaysia is famed for a lot of attractions, ones that have garnered international recognition. They receive a lot of praises but unfortunately, not all are as accessible to all tourists as they are considered to be. Facilities for people with disabilities are not as universal as people would like to believe. There are places that seem to have enough and yet it is not as accessible as it appears to be.

According to the Government Statistics Department, it was recorded about 15-20% of the population are born with disabilities; the figure is in line with the World Health Organization whereby 20% of the world population is born with different disabilities.

While our country Malaysia is developing and progressing over the years, the cost of living in the city centre is becoming very expensive. Therefore, most of the people choose to live in the outskirts of the city centre, eg Petaling Jaya, Puchong, Shah Alam, etc.

Unfortunately, most of these new townships didn’t take into consideration people with disabilities.

Puchong is one of the strategic new townships that is well connected by highways and further enhanced by an LRT train station a few years down the road. It is also one of the major towns in the Petaling district of Selangor and is situated midway between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s political capital, and Putrajaya, the administrative capital.

Though Puchong is becoming a future vibrant city, the town planning and the facilities built around it has not been well considered for people with disabilities.

With this purpose in mind, The Beautiful Gate Foundation (Puchong Branch), Yayasan Nanyang Press, Bao Bei Reading Wonderland and main sponsor E-Excel have decided to jointly organise the 《Love with No Barrier》 Barrier-Free Environment Awareness Walk project.

What is “Disability”?

“Disability” refers to defects in congenital or acquired physical encounter, leading to the need to rely on aids to complete his or her life.

What is a Barrier-Free Environment?

A barrier-free environment takes into account the accessibility of the physical environment, information and communication.

Accessibility requirements are mainly in a physical environment: for roads, public transportation, public buildings and residential areas of planning, its design and construction should not be met with obstacles. They should be easily used by people with wheelchairs, crutches, and those with visually impaired access.

Accessibility of information and communication can be evaluated in television news, movies, TV shows through the use of subtitles, Braille and audio books.

Why Do We Need a Barrier-Free Environment?

A barrier-free environment allows people with disabilities, pregnant women, the elderly, children and other members of the community to go out and participate in the basic conditions of social life and other important facilities. It also directly affects the country’s image with the international image of the city.

Who Are Involved in a Barrier-Free Environment?

A barrier-free environment provides facilities that can be used by people with disabilities, the elderly, pregnant women and children.
