For people with disabilities — worldwide

Our topics


  • Reha­bi­li­ta­ti­on: We pro­vi­de hund­reds of thousands of peop­le with phy­sio­the­ra­py and help with prosthe­ses, wheel­chairs or other aids.
  • Pre­ven­ti­on and health: We take care of equal access to the health sys­tem for all peop­le — a cen­tral basis for par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on in society.

Political work and campaigns

  • We fight against mines and clus­ter bombs as well as against bom­bing attacks on the civi­li­an popu­la­ti­on. We clear explo­si­ve rem­nants of war and cla­ri­fy the dangers.
  • For examp­le, we want to use cam­pai­gns and poli­ti­cal lob­by­ing to make huma­ni­ta­ri­an aid and deve­lo­p­ment coope­ra­ti­on more inclusive.


Han­di­cap Inter­na­tio­nal is com­mit­ted to the aca­de­mic, pro­fes­sio­nal and social inte­gra­ti­on of peop­le with disa­bi­li­ties in around 60 countries.

Disaster and Refugee Relief

We pro­vi­de inclu­si­ve emer­gen­cy aid after ear­th­qua­kes, tsu­na­mis or armed con­flicts. Dis­ab­led peop­le and others in need of spe­cial pro­tec­tion must not be for­got­ten! We are also deve­lo­ping mea­su­res and ear­ly warning sys­tems to make dis­as­ter risk reduc­tion more inclusive.
