CBM is an international Christian development organisation devoted to improving the lives of people with disabilities in the poorest places on earth. Poverty and disability go hand in hand creating a cycle of inequality, isolation and exclusion that leads to the most extreme forms of poverty.
Through our 110 year history and over 30 years in Australia, we have developed proven community based programs that help millions of people benefit from real, lasting change.
80% of people with disabilities live in poverty.
We help make lasting change possible by:
Preventing and treating avoidable blindness such as cataract, river blindness and trachoma.
Helping practically by providing aids and equipment, access to much-needed treatment, learning a skill and going to school.
Influencing communities, organisations and governments to change attitudes and policies so everyone is included.
