Press Office

Press releases, reports, and information for journalists interested in covering Humanity & Inclusion's work and the stories of people we support.

Humanity & Inclusion is often among the first to respond to natural disasters and crises, and we stay behind long afterwards to ensure that disabled people get the long term support they need. We have around 3,500 local staff supporting disabled and vulnerable people worldwide in countries affected by conflict, disaster and poverty.

HI staff regularly offer their insight to the media. We have a wide range of expert spokespeople available for interviews with UK and international journalists. Our press team can facilitate access to HI staff and projects and provide a wide range of high quality reports, case studies, photos and video.

The lives of civilians in Gaza are still endangered by explosive remnants of war [1], one year after the outbreak of fighting between Israel and Palestinian armed groups. At least 4,500 explosive devices [2], are still buried under the rubble of houses and infrastructure destroyed during the 50-day conflict. Handicap International immediately supplied aid to the most vulnerable individuals and, since March 2015, it has organised risk education sessions to prevent more people falling victim to these weapons.


A mine-free world within 10 years: States must keep their promise

To mark the publication today of the 2015 Landmine Monitor report [1] on the progress of the Mine Ban Treaty [2] , Handicap International is reminding States Parties to the treaty of their promise at the Maputo conference in June 2014 to free the world of mines by 2025. The report also notes a rise in the number of mine casualties and the use of mines during 2014. The organisation is calling on States Parties to redouble their efforts to eliminate this threat.
