Humanitarian crises and natural disasters hit vulnerable groups hardest. Amongst these are persons with disabilities. They are at risk of staying behind because they are either hidden as a result of stigma or when they and their caregivers cannot cope with the situation. Natural disasters and conflicts lead to an increase of disabilities caused, among others, by injuries or the effects of malnutrition. LIGHT FOR THE WORLD, in cooperation with local partners, is committed to make sure that persons with disabilities are not forgotten in emergency work.
During humanitarian crises and natural disasters, persons in vulnerable circumstances are hit hardest. This includes persons with disabilities. According to a recent WHO World Report on Disability, 15% of the population worldwide live with a disability, 80% of them in developing countries. This means that more than 700 million persons are at a higher risk of not accessing humanitarian action because of discrimination, physical barriers or their relative invisibility to intervening organisations.
