      Disabled Demonstrate for Bigger Stipends


      Dozens of disabled people demonstrated, Sunday afternoon, near the Prime Minister's Office to demand an increase in government aid.

      Doron Yehuda, who chairs a group of organizations for the disabled, told Arutz Sheva, "The disabled are participants and supporters of the general public's struggle but it must be remembered that the disabled public is harmed much worse. Our stipend has remained the same for ten years while the price of gasoline, water and housing has jumped tens of percentage points. I hope that the prime minister and the Welfare Ministry will find solutions to our demands."
