In Bangladesh we also reach persons with disabilities in remote areas

Rehabilitation in remote areas

LIGHT FOR THE WORLD improves functioning and societal inclusion of persons with disabilities living in poverty – especially in rural areas of Bangladesh and communities, which are hard to reach. We reached 30.700 poor persons with disabilities through enhanced service delivery as well as the promotion of disability mainstreaming. By boat and bus, we provide rehabilitation services to people in 29 remote areas.
