Physically challenged Nigerian Salmatu Abubakar has four children with another on the way.
Without her sight and the source of income，Abubakar has trouble getting by, sometimes begging to survive.
She says the current virus pandemic has exacerbated this challenge.
"Since the pandemic, weve suffered to feed our children.We dont have any money. We had to stop our children from going to school."
Some 27 million Nigerians live with disabilities and constitute a third of the countrys poorest.
This Abuja community for the disabled includes 600 people, most of whom depend in some way on support from aid groups.
Community secretary Mohammad Dantiny says even that is hard to come by these days.
"Before if not two days two three days, you see somebody.
But now we take like three to one week, four weeks before you see some assistance to the community."
To cope some women here are taking on the pandemic with a savings cooperative plan they started last August.
Women like Abubakar have benefited from the scheme.
"Im very happy with this contribution. One time my child was sick, they gave me about fourteen dollars.
I used the money to take my child to the hospital."
Advocates say the pandemic has further marginalized disabled persons.
In the issue of the information dissemination, there are a lot of programs around assisting people.
But the question that one need to ask how inclusive are the programs is. We have sign language interpreters.
Advocates are calling for the commission to become more active to ensure people like Abubakar are getting the support they desperately need.
