About Handicap International:

Since its activities began in Pakistan in 1987, HI has been aiding the Afghan people. Working at various levels of society and using a cross-sectoral strategy, HI has been functioning in Afghanistan since 1996 to implement victim support activities. While actively supporting conflict victims on the ground with a variety of programs, such as physical rehabilitation, mine risk education, and inclusive livelihoods, HI has also consistently fought for more rights for victims and other people with disabilities in the nation. In particular, and in keeping with its worldwide strategy and aims, HI has pushed for a decrease in the use of conventional weapons and landmines. Recognizing the need to address both immediate emergency crises and longer-term, chronic gaps in the provision of services, HI has steadily increased the scope of its activities and services to support the most vulnerable individuals, fostering their resilience while enhancing the participation and inclusion of all people.
