Handicap International

Handicap International is an independent, non-profit organisation that intervenes in situations of poverty, social exclusion, conflict and disaster. As well as assisting those in hardship due to chronic disability caused by illness, and people in mental and psychological distress, Handicap International assists their extended families and community. Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, and where everyone can live in dignity.
