Handicap International’s  500-person strong team are working every day supporting disabled, injured and other vulnerable refugees. Vital aid, rehabilitation care, psychological support, fitting amputees with artificial limbs, are just some of the services our teams provide. So far we’ve helped more than 360,000 people since our humanitarian response activities began in 2012.
