By providing a range of assistive devices (aids and appliances) this project has enabled greater freedom for disabled people to participate in various aspects of community life while simultaneously alleviating some of the caring burden, in turn freeing time for carers to, for instance, earn a living, and thereby reduce family poverty.
This project also offered basic rehabilitation therapy training to disabled people’s carers, equipping those carers with a skill that removes the need to seek costly therapy through a commercial service.
In this project, our local partner CDD held a mobile outreach disability camp in Savar. A team of rehabilitation and primary health specialists assessed and diagnosed disabilities, referred those who required specialised rehabilitation services and/or corrective surgery, and promoted functional independence as far as is possible.
Commit to Carers is our free monthly e-newsletter where we share updates and inspiring stories, as well as upcoming events and opportunities to get involved in our work. It is available for anyone who has an interest in the global carers’ movement.
