Sarsah Jolol was quoted by the BBC as saying of the 2012 Paralympics, "There is a stigma in the Arab world when discussing the plight of people with disability. In Morocco there is not the necessary infrastructure to support and accommodate the needs of people with disabilities. On the other hand in Europe, the disabled enjoy a life without discrimination with the forthcoming Paralympic Games being proof."
