Humanity & Inclusion in Cambodia
Our team has been working in Cambodia since 1982, providing prosthetic limbs and rehabilitation services to survivors of the Cambodian landmine explosions. Since our entry, our mission has expanded to include many more services.
Even though Cambodia has achieved strong economic growth rates and political stability in the past 20 years, the country still bears the scars of its violent recent history and the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979).
Landmines and other explosive remnants of war leftover from the conflict in the country continue to claim new victims today.
Our Current Work
In addition to addressing the needs of the survivors of Cambodian landmine explosions between 1982 and 1986, Humanity & Inclusion’s team of 54 nationals, three expatriates, and eight civil servants work diligently to:
- Provide physical rehabilitation
- Improve maternal and child health
- Promote and help to improve road safety
- Ensure inclusive employment
Humanity & Inclusion offers orthopedic-fitting and physical therapy sessions to empower mine victims and enable them to stand tall.
We also contribute to the quality and sustainability of the rehabilitation sector in Cambodia by providing staff training and administrative support to provincial rehabilitation centers.
