Abstract: This paper explores how PWD’s well-being is realized in disaster situations in Kisumu County of Kenya. Statistics from the National Council for People with Disability indicates that a significant population of 15,760 people are disabled across Kisumu County. Their well-being is protected by the UN Conventions on the Rights of Disabled People (UNCRDP) and UN Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disability during disasters. At the national level, the well-being of persons with disability is taken care of in the Disability Act, 2003 and the National Disability Policy.
