Humanity & Inclusion’s emergency response teams take action on the ground to assist the most vulnerable, in particular people with disabilities, injured and displaced people.

Humanity & Inclusion is the world's most comprehensive mine action organisation, working to prevent accidents, clear unexploded weapons, and support the victims.

For people injured as a result of war or natural disasters, who have congenital impairments such as club foot, or who are affected by disabling diseases like polio, physical rehabilitation is the first step towards regaining independence.

 Whether improving access to local health services, working to prevent the causes of disability, or providing psychological support to the survivors of violence, all HI's actions serve one purpose: to ensure that everyone, including disabled people, has equal access to information, health services and care.

HI works with people with disabilities, their families, their communities and a range of organisations for a truly inclusive world where people with disabilities have equal opportunities and rights.

To access healthcare, to attend school, to work, to express oneself, to play sports, to have leisure activities ... In order for these fundamental rights to be the rights of all, including the most vulnerable people in society, Humanity & Inclusion takes action worldwide to promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
