Created in 1982, Handicap International (HI) is an independent and impartial international aid organization working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. Working alongside people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups, our actions are focused on responding to their essential needs, improving their living conditions and promoting respect for their dignity and their fundamental rights.

Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:

  • The Direction of Humanitarian Action (DAH)
  • The Direction of Development Action (DAD)

Handicap International (HI) has been working in Bangladesh since 1997, with a focus on creating sustainable changes in terms of ensuring rights and inclusion of people with disabilities in society. Currently HI Bangladesh has 4 sites: in Sitakunda, Chittagong; in Teknaf and Ukhiya in Cox’s Baazar; and in Kurigram. A coordination office will be set up in Cox’s Bazar town by September 2017.

Since the end of August, more than 500,000 people from the Rohingya minority have crossed the Myanmar border and taken refuge in Bangladesh. Joining 300,000 to 500,000 Rohingyas already present in the country. The humanitarian needs are huge in terms of food, access to water and sanitary facilities, but also health care, rehabilitation sessions and accommodation.

Handicap International has been working in two refugee camps, makeshift shelters and host communities in the Teknaf and Ukhiya districts of Cox’s Bazar since 2007, therefore our teams are now supplying aid to the new arrivals and identifying the most vulnerable people, assessing their health, rehabilitation and accommodation needs. We are already providing psychosocial support and emergency rehabilitation services to the new arrivals under the existing projects.

However, due to the scale of the crisis and continuous influx averaging 15,000 per day, HI is working to expand the existing response to accommodate emerging needs.

HI proposes, with its logistics platform project, to provide to the humanitarian actors engaged in the response free road transportation services within the crisis affected areas, as well as pre-delivery temporary warehousing services. This will help the actors already present in the areas make their response more efficient and cost effective, while new actors, so far limited in their intervention by logistic and budget constraints, will be enabled to launch emergency operations.
