It is an accessible  Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) to the community  which ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as all other community members. This includes; equal access to health care, education, skills training, employment, family life, social mobility and political empowerment. We conduct rehabilitation care that can help you get back, keep or improve abilities that you need for daily life. These disabilities may be physical, mental and cognitive (thinking and learning), this may occur due to a disease, injury or as a side effect from a medical treatment.  we believe that living with a disability will play a key role in transforming the world into a better place.
