Mission

Disability Aid Abroad is a Northern Ireland charity established to change the lives of people with disabilities living in developing countries.

People with Disabilities in developing countries are the ‘forgotten voice’ of international aid, and they need urgent specific targeted aid.

 

  • 50 million people with disabilities living in Africa of which only 2% have access to any form of aid
  • 90% of children with mental disabilities die before the age of 5
  • 70% of disabled adults live in abject poverty

There are:

  • 650 million persons with disabilities in the world, or 10 per cent of the global population.
  • An estimated 80% of these persons live in developing countries, many in conditions of poverty.
  • People with Disabilities are disproportionately represented among the world’s poor and tend to be poorer than their counterparts without disabilities.

There is an urgent need to solve this appalling problem and Disability Aid Abroad has been formed specifically to help disabled people in developing countries.

    i like what you are doing it is real too good, i am from Tanzania, the executive chairperson of the organization of Disabled information which deal with reporting the news about the people of disabled through media, we think if media can report the issues of disabled people can change the negative attitude the society have toward the disabled people. we wish to work with your organization if possible.
    thanks

    The very first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The final is always to say thank you. Involving, the first choice is a servant.
    If the career you’ve selected has some unexpected inconvenience, console yourself by reflecting that no career is without one.
