Handicap International

Abstract

Officially started August 3, 1982, Handicap International (HI) works to provide rapid intervention on behalf of the handicapped and the most vulnerable populations when armed conflict upsets existing systems of assistance and solidarity. In countries where the economic problem is severe or where their expertise in prevention and socioeconomic development is requested, HI also steps in to assist. Technicians in the association offer expertise in protheses, physical therapy, psychomotor therapy, psychology, and landmine action . HI presently conducts over 160 projects in rehabilitation, prevention, rural development and emergency programs in 52 countries.
