Humanitarian Aid: All Inclusive
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.
