Present from the start of the disaster, Handicap International’s teams continue to help those worst affected. Thanks to the exceptional support of its donors and funding bodies, and the dedication of its teams on the ground, much has already been done to support victims, to help amputees stand tall and perform day-to-day tasks again, and to assist the most vulnerable individuals, with or without disabilities, overcome each new obstacle. The people of Haiti need to rebuild both their lives and their country. That’s why Handicap International, which provides aid to people with disabilities, is also building shelters, setting up rapid response systems to protect the population from future disasters, and promoting the economic and social inclusion of vulnerable individuals.
