Handicap International began its activities in the Maldives following the Tsunami of December 26, 2004. In 2007 the organisation launched a project to support those promoting the social participation and autonomy of people with disabilities in various fields: social and sports activities, work, education, language, access to information and awareness raising on the issue of disability. The following testimonies give an insight into life in the Maldives for people with disabilities.
