Cause Area: Overseas Aid and Development
Mission StatementAn inclusive world in which all persons with disabilities enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential.
DescriptionTo have a lasting impact on the lives of the poorest men, women and children with disability, we encourage self-reliance and participation. We always work in partnership with local organisations, and we provide an important advocacy link to local and national governments and agencies. At home and overseas, we campaign tirelessly to change attitudes towards disability. Over time, CBMs work has widened from serving just people with vision impairment to giving all people with disabilities access to basic healthcare services and restoring life.
