Since the summer of 2012, HI has been working alongside Syrian refugees and vulnerable people in Jordan, including people with disabilities. Through partners, the organization provides rehabilitation services: physiotherapy and orthopaedic equipment services to people with disabilities or injuries in the centre set up in refugees’ camps and in hospitals and clinics. The association also provides training to the local staff.
In addition, HI has set up several permanent and mobile "disability and vulnerability" centres to ensure that the most vulnerable people receive the help they need: rehabilitation care, prostheses, mobility aids (crutches, wheelchairs, etc.), psychosocial support and assistance in accessing other forms of humanitarian aid.
To date, in Jordan, approximately 180,000 Syrian refugees have benefited from these initiatives.
Finally, HI works with organisations of people with disabilities, helping them to obtain greater recognition of their rights, and particularly for a better economic inclusion.
