Handicap International has been working in Cambodia for almost 30 years. The organisation is managing various programmes there, particularly in the areas of road safety, maternal and infant health, physical rehabilitation, social and economic insertion and the fight against landmines.
In 2011, Handicap International intends to pursue its various programmes and continue to collaborate with the authorities and civil society. The organisation will also be paying more attention to less visible disabilities, such as hearing and speech problems, which are often synonymous with social exclusion and difficulties in education
The objective of Handicap International is to help people with disabilities to regain their independence, dignity and rights. Handicap International has gradually developed multi-faceted prevention and rehabilitation projects in Cambodia to respond to the needs of people with disabilities, especially mine victims.
