HI is working with the population of Sindh province, where there is a high risk of flooding, to identify solutions to mitigate the risks and consequences of climate-related disasters. Communities are encouraged to perform their own natural disaster risk evaluations and implement evacuation plans (that include people with disabilities) and preventive measures (prevention, alert systems, food stockpiling). In developing this project, HI encourages the active participation of people with disabilities of all kinds (physical, sensory, isolated and elderly people etc.) and seeks to build solidarity between the different communities.
Since 2016, HI leads the Growing Together project, in partnership with the IKEA foundation. This project aims at creating child-friendly spaces in the refugee camps – these spaces will contribute to the integration of all children, with a focus on children with disabilities. Thanks to educational games, artistic activities and sports, HI supports their social and emotional development and their self-esteem as well as social cohesion among children.
In 2017, a project focusing on physical rehabilitation for persons with disabilities and psychosocial support for vulnerable persons was launched in the federally administered tribal areas.
