This Friday (13) is International Hardship Day. The appointment was made in the UK and aims to make people aware of the challenges faced by left-handers.
Left-handed is a person who mostly writes or uses his left hand. Left-handers suffered from a lot of prejudice in the past and even today many cultures discriminate against left-handers, as 90% of the world’s population is right-handed.
