When major natural disasters such as earthquakes or extensive flooding occur in China, Humanity & Inclusion offers emergency relief assistance to victims. Its first relief efforts were rolled out in the provinces of Guangxi, Heilongjiang and Inner Mongolia between 1998 and 2000, then in Sichuan, which was hit by earthquakes in 2008 and 2013, and also in Yunnan in August 2014.
The organisation also contributes to the development of more inclusive policies in conjunction with a number of partners at both government and civil society level so that vulnerable people can play an active role in society. The projects implemented focus on access to education and employment for both children and adults with disabilities and autism; they also seek to promote their social inclusion and improve their knowledge of sexuality and reproductive health. Humanity & Inclusion aims to reduce gender-based violence towards disabled women and girls, notably by working with women’s and disabled people’s organisations in China. The organisation also promotes the inclusion of people with mental impairments in society.
