Handicap International works to bring about lasting change in the living conditions of people in disabling situations in post-conflict or low income countries around the world. We work with local partners to prevent and to address the consequences of disabling accidents and diseases; clear landmines/UXO and prevent mine-related accidents through education; end the use of indiscriminate weapons that wound and kill the innocent long after the war is over; respond fast and effectively to natural and civil disasters to limit serious and permanent injuries and assist survivors with social and economic reintegration; and advocate for the universal recognition of the rights of the disabled through national planning and advocacy.
