“Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable




  p




opulations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our




 




differences, where everyone can live in dignity”




 


Humanity & Inclusion


(HI) 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.


 


Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes


 


in more than 60 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of


 


around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.


 


HI is engaged in an employment policy in favour of disabled workers.

Health Assistance in Libya’ (AMAL) as part of wider initiatives to improve the access

Libyan Ministry of Health and a Tunisian NGO, the overall objective of the project is


 


to allow the most vulnerable people in Libya from host communities, those internally


 


displaced and returnees and migrants, suffering from mental health


 


disorders/psychosocial disabilities to regain or to preserve good mental health by


 


accessing quality interventions at community level, primary health care level, and


 


secondary and tertiary level.


 


From June 2020 HI will also start a one year project entitled ‘Strong And Loving Active


 


Minds’ (SALAM) to enhance the development of a culture of peace, cooperation and


 


responsibility – with a focus on youth (male and female) – through improved provision


 


of MHPSS services at community level. This project will strongly rely on


 


Libyan Civil Society Organisations.

increased ERW related accidents, HI is also currently resuming its Risk Education
