In 2020, for the second year running, Humanity & Inclusion has been granted a Special Award from Postcode Global Trust, with funds raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. These vital funds are supporting the work of our physiotherapists, orthopaedic technicians and psychologists in rehabilitation centres, in the community, in hospitals and refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon.
Thank you to players of People’s Postcode Lottery
According to our research, one in five Syria refugees has a physical, sensory or learning impairment. Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, our teams will be able to reach more refugees with disabilities affected by the Syrian conflict, who find it extremely difficult to access help.
How does it work?
32% of the lottery ticket price goes to charities. So far, players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £50 million for good causes - an incredible impact.
The difference it makes

Every day, our rehabilitation teams offer a lifeline to the most vulnerable victims of the Syria crisis.
People like Mohammed, who is 5 years old. He has a malformation of the spine causing paralysis of his lower limbs. With the help and support of Manal, a physiotherapist at CDC Zarqa (a partner of HI in Jordan), Mohammad can now climb small steps. Mohammad also now has access to a wheelchair, which Humanity & Inclusion has been able to provide him with.

To celebrate the support from players of People's Postcode Lottery, our Head of Partnerships and Philanthropy, Jane Morris, has written a blog post about her visit to projects in Jordan and Lebanon and shares the stories of some of the incredibly brave children that we have helped.

Campaign to Stop Bombing Civilians
Everyday our teams hear the stories of innocent people whose lives have been changed forever after being injured in air-strikes and other attacks with explosive weapons. Amputations, spinal injuries, broken limbs and shrapnel wounds are amongst the most common injuries seen by our rehabilitation teams.
Shockingly, nine out of ten victims of explosive weapon attacks in urban areas are civilians. Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery we will be able to reach even more members of the public with our Stop Bombing Civilians campaign.
