This danger is mainly present in some CBM-partner communities overseas, where accessibility issues may prevent people with disabilities from seeking and receiving treatment.
The self-help groups supported by our teams in Bangladesh quickly noticed this danger and did fantastic work throughout the pandemic to support people with disabilities.
They have helped link families with different relief opportunities and carried out awareness campaigns in their local community to help people stay safe.
Plus, through their advocacy efforts, they’ve even seen local hospitals open their services to people with complex needs – people who had previously been unable to receive treatment.
One of the members of the self-help groups in Bangladesh said that, by working together, they could find the strength to “overcome all sorts of obstacles”.
That’s some serious strength!
