CBM’s work with NTDs
Persons with disabilities often experience discrimination and exclusion, despite the adoption of an increasingly rights-based approach to humanitarian assistance. The past three decades have witnessed a growing awareness of disability issues and the emergence and spread of disabled people’s organisations.
The growing awareness must be accompanied by practical measures to identify and reduce the barriers faced by persons with disabilities in an emergency situation.
On 21 May 2014, CBM went to Maluku transit camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo to assist the Ministry of Social Affairs and the IOM in identifying the needs of persons with disabilities within the camp.
CBM and local partner in DRC are supporting persons with disabilities who have been displaced as a result of the recently escalating conflict. Support is required to provide basic needs.
