Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.

Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ». HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

The socioeconomic crisis in Venezuela continued to deteriorate throughout 2018, leading to further collapse of services, deterioration of health facilities, food security, and nutrition among the population, and one of the biggest mass displacements in South America’s history. According to UNHCR at least 2.5 million Venezuelans have left the country since 2014, though other sources estimate that this figure could exceed 4 million, including nearly 2 million in Colombia. The fallouts of the crisis across the region have increased proportionally: 3.4 million migrants/refugees are registered in neighboring countries (Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and other Latin-American and Caribbean countries), as well as in the US and in Europe, according to UNHCR-IOM.

The economic crisis is amplified by the deepening political crisis. Since 23 January 2019, the situation in Venezuela has entered into a more acute phase of the crisis, following the self-proclamation of the President of the National Assembly as Interim President and the introduction of new economic sanctions by the US.

HI intends to respond by implementing an intervention through local partners, with the aim to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable Venezuelan, including persons with disabilities, by ensuring access to inclusive and quality services & livelihoods through a multi-sectoral response.
