Often in a disaster, the most vulnerable are forgotten. With your donation, you will ensure persons with disabilities are included in rescue efforts and receive humanitarian aid. Handicap international is on the ground now as we speak, helping men, women and children in the Philippines who have lost everything in the devastation brought by Typhoon Haiyan.
Handicap International's most prestigious awards include:
2011 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize
For our assistance to people with disabilities in situations of poverty, exclusion, conflict and disaster.
1997 Nobel Peace Prize
For campaign success with our partners at the International Campaign to Ban Landmines in creating the 1997 Ottawa Mine Ban Treaty, which bans the deployment, stockpiling, production and sale of anti-personnel mines, and ensures their destruction.
1996 United Nations Nansen Refugee Award
For our service to refugees as well as our contributions to the elimination of landmines.
