About the Organisation
Too many people face poverty, stigma and isolation, denied the chance to go to school or earn a living, just because they have a disability. And every day people lose the ability to see, hear or walk because of conditions that could easily be treated or prevented.
Driven by Christian values, CBM works in the world’s poorest places to reach those whom others leave behind. Working in partnership with Governments and local partners, we create long-term positive change: treating and preventing conditions that can lead to disability and supporting people with disabilities to access education and healthcare, earn a living and be included in their communities.
An inclusive world in which all people with disabilities enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential.
To transform the lives of disabled people in the world’s poorest communities. Driven by Christian values, we work with disabled people to break down barriers by delivering practical support, improving policy and practice and inspiring the people of the UK to act.
• Challenging injustice
• Making every action count
• Embracing partnership
