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 organization 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.
Since the organization was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programs in more than 55 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.
HI has been working in Bangladesh since 1997, with a focus on creating sustainable changes in terms of ensuring rights and inclusion of people with disabilities in society.
In Cox Bazar’s district, HI has a strong knowledge and experience in chronic emergency response. Thanks to three projects implemented before the crisis, HI is providing services in rehabilitation, protection and PSS, with an inclusive mainstreaming approach to refugees and host population. HI works not only with people with disabilities and other vulnerable populations, but also with their families, their communities, and the society, in order to provide sustainability in its action.
In response to the massive influx of refugees, HI also set-up an emergency intervention responding to the needs of thousands of refugees. Multi-sectorial mobile teams are currently working in 13 camps located in both Teknaf and Ukhyia Upazilas providing services in physical rehabilitation, primary health care, protection and PSS. Because of the extremely vulnerability of certain persons, the mobile intervention are combined with a static approach in the camps in order to provide comprehensive services.
In addition, HI is directly operating physical Rehabilitation services in 3 hospitals and 2 clinics located in the districts serving both Rohingyas Refugees and Host population.
As for its operational strategy for 2020, HI seek for opportunities to expand the provision of Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services in the camps through its existing MU and to provide outreach physical rehabilitation services (home visits) in Host Communities.
