Just because the news moves on, it doesn't mean that a crisis is over.
That's why Humanity & Inclusion has been working tirelessly for 40 years to ensure that the most vulnerable people are never left behind.
And we'll be there for as long as it takes.

URGENT NEED FOR PHYSICAL REHABILITATION AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT
“We expect a huge need for rehabilitation.
There are thousands of injured people and many of these injuries can worsen or turn into permanent disabilities if people do not receive appropriate rehabilitation services such as physiotherapy and prosthetic fitting.
We know from responding to disasters in other countries that one of the heaviest legacies of this earthquake will be its psychological impact.
Surviving an earthquake can be a deeply traumatising experience - and it will be especially so for people who have already endured a decade of war in Syria.
Psychological first aid is an essential component of the emergency response.”
George Graham, Chief Executive of Humanity & Inclusion UK.
