Disability Working Group
Persons with disabilities are among the most affected people by Cyclone Idai and the consecutive floods. However, most humanitarian aid organisations do not have specific expertise on how to make their aid efforts accessible to and inclusive of persons with disabilities.Therefore, the objectives of the Disability Working Group (DWG) are to:
- Make persons with disabilities visible in the humanitarian aid response to Cyclone Idai, through data collection of the DWG members and advocating of disability disaggregated data by mainstream humanitarian actors.
- Enable humanitarian aid organisations to make their on-going and upcoming aid efforts accessible to and inclusive of persons with disabilities.
- Strengthen the involvement of DWG in participating in various Clusters and related response activities.
