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, where everyone can live in dignity.
Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ». HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

HI has offices in more than 55 countries.
Since 2011, continued conflict in many parts of Libya and political instability have resulted in a vacuum of effective governance and caused significant collapse in the country’s political-institutional system. Security, rule of law and social and economic well-being of the Libyan population have all been severely affected.
The healthcare system in Libya is one of the hardest hit by the ongoing instability, having deteriorated near to the point of collapse. Ongoing challenges include increased rates of chronic illness, disability and access to essential services such as medicine and rehabilitation. Hospitals struggle to absorb the number of patients and to cope with lack of resources, including a shortage of staff and essential medicines and supplies.
The identification of the most vulnerable individuals and the rapid response to essential needs is a priority for the humanitarian community working throughout Libya. In addition, the number of victims as a result of conventional weapons and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) continues to grow. In contaminated areas, local populations, internally displaced persons and returning populations are all at risk of death and injury.

Provision of comprehensive rehabilitation services including physical therapy and psychosocial support for persons with disabilities or injuries, and distribution of assistive devices as required

Training on inclusion principles to other humanitarian actors and health workers
