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 an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:
- The Direction of Humanitarian Action
- The Direction of Development Action
Since April 2014, eastern Ukraine experiences a significant humanitarian crisis situation due to the persistence of armed conflict, opposing the Ukrainian Government and Separatist forces. As of 2 February, at least 6,000 people were killed and 15,000 people were wounded, more than 5 million people are in need of assistance, and 1,1 million IDPs are registered across the country. The conflict has plunged the majority population of Donetsk and Lugansk regions in an alarming situation, who is no longer able to access income and to meet their primary needs, such as food, water, health care and shelter. Many people suffering from injuries or disability do not have access to governmental or Non-Governmental assistance because of their mobility reduction, increasing their vulnerability and their emergency humanitarian needs.
The project implemented by Handicap International in Ukraine is responding to the most urgent needs identified.
Mine Risk Education : Increase awareness related to the threat posed by CW (Conventional Weapons) for children living in affected areas ;
Physical rehabilitation and capacity building: Prevention and reduction of the risk of complications/impairments of injured people through home-based rehabilitation, donation of assistive devices to conflict-affected individuals and capacity building of health facilities in terms of early rehabilitation cares.
Inclusion : Advocacy at coordination levels, networking among key structures to improve inclusion practices in emergency responses and allow humanitarian stakeholders to reach the most vulnerable at risk of exclusion and cover their needs, and enhancement of the access to information for vulnerable individuals affected by the country.
