The club will make them feel a sense of belonging in the society."
"i disagree with the notion that people with disability hardly takes into tobacco habit, it's because a lot of people don't get closer to the, noting that the disability person should be seen as integral part of the society, and since habits are not written on fore head. The Tobacco Abstinence Club is a great move for us."
