Working with Crohn’s disease, an invisible disability
Today, 80% of people with a mountain hike in France are completely invisible. This may surprise you, but it’s a reality: 2% of people with disabilities are in wheelchairs! Working with Crohn’s disease is therefore also a situation that is sometimes problematic and yet not visible. It is an invisible disability. Latifa lives in a small village in the Moselle and has just celebrated her 30th birthday.
Like more than 60,000 French people, she has a severe form of Crohn’s disease, a chronic intestinal infection that affected her 15 years ago. Graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Communication, she was able to overcome hospitalizations to complete her career in 4 years. She is now recognized as a disabled employee and is looking for a job after working as a secretary.
