Disability Inclusion in Humanitarian Action in South Sudan

In South Sudan Light for the World has been engaged in humanitarian action programmes since 2013, when the political crisis developed into a civil war. Since then, Light for the World has been collaborating with humanitarian aid programmes to support persons with disabilities in displacement camps with humanitarian assistance. This case study documents the process which started with collaborating with one key player (Dorcas Aid International) and resulted in making the wider humanitarian aid sector more disability-inclusive. The data for this case study was gathered by means of an Outcome Harvesting (OH) process. The lessons learned show that such a change requires committed individuals and organisations. The case study also demonstrates that persons with disabilities themselves can become agents for change and technical experts on disability inclusion.
