“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. 

Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development  programmes in 62 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.  For further information about the association: www.hi.org. 


HI is currently implementing several programmes in Tripoli, Misrata and  Benghazi, supporting vulnerable persons and their families such as people with  disabilities (including people living with mental health problems), people with  chronic diseases, older persons, displaced and returnees’ persons and families,  migrants and refugees. Activities include provision of comprehensive  rehabilitation services including physical therapy and psychosocial support,  provision of assistive & mobility devices as per needed; capacity building,  technical support and donations of assistive devices and/or materials and  equipment to health partners; training on inclusion principles to other  humanitarian actors and health workers; 

Since early 2019 HI is implementing a three-year project entitled ‘Action for  Mental Health Assistance in Libya’ (AMAL) as part of wider initiatives to  improve the access and quality of health care services in Libya. Implemented in  partnership with the 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. 

In June 2020 HI also started 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. 

HI is also involved in Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) activities. As a response  to increased ERW related accidents, HI is also currently resuming its Risk  Education activities in greater Tripoli since November 2020.
