Which is not seen?

"Disability, which is not seen" - a flashmob of people with disabilities that are not visible at first sight.

Using the hashtag #InvisiblyDisabledLooksLike people from all over the world with various physical, mental, neurological, and sensory disabilities share their stories and photos. So they want to show that a disability may not have the visual signs, but the lack of understanding of society forces them to struggle leads to isolation. 

According to the world health organization, the world about 15% of people with a disability, of which 110-190 million have very significant difficulties in everyday life. The survey conducted in the USA showed that 74% of people with disabilities not using a wheelchair, cane, Walker or something else that can testify to their disability. They are often faced with misunderstanding in the community and hear: "But you're not similar to the person with the disability." And the result is forced to fight not only the disease but also incomprehension because people don't understand their pain and problems, not seeing outward signs of disability.

Today on Twitter and Instagram you can count a few thousand posts, laid out during the flashmob.
