More than 100 disabled people staged a performance in Huangpu District yesterday to commemorate the 29th International Day of People With Disabilities.

Hosted by the Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation, performances consisted of dance, opera, kuaiban (clapper talk) and short sketch.

The event celebrated the devotion of disabled people, medical workers and people from all walks of life in the battle against COVID-19, federation officials said. Some disabled people in Shanghai were on the front line of the fight, while others served as community workers and volunteers.

Local disabled people also created art, such as photographs, calligraphy, paintings, paper cuts, eggshell and bamboo carvings, to document the pandemic.
