With around 8% of the Sri Lankan population occupied by people with disabilities the facilities provided for this vulnerable community are yet to improve. Although disability access is a must in almost every public building, ensuring access to modes of transport if often being ignored. Inability to get into various public transport services, especially buses and trains puts the lives of the disabled in both difficulty and danger.

Arasaradnam Jathuna, a young mobile storyteller trained under the "Mobile Storytelling" program launched by SDJF in collaboration with iVoice and Neelan Thiruchelvam Trust (NTT) wants the authorities as well as the public to look into this matter and do the justice to the community.
