HI is an independent and impartial aid organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, taking action and bearing witness in order to respond to their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
HI was founded in 1982 from a feeling of outrage about the injustice faced by victims of conflict. Discover more about the mission and vision that guide our operations today in over sixty countries.
