Ageing and Disability Focal Points (ADFPs) provide the link between persons with disabilities and essential public services.

Blog from Philippines recovery projects

April 2014 - It’s almost five months since typhoon Haiyan tore across this beautiful country, destroying homes and lives. With our partners here, CBM provided essential relief supplies in the beginning, ensuring that people with disabilities were not forgotten, and are now working on longer term recovery and rehabilitation.

You remember my colleague David Lewis talking about the Ageing and Disability Focal Points being set up by CBM and our partner Association of Disabled People (ADPI). Here, in the coastal towns of Concepcion and Estancia, in Iloilo province, I’m seeing them in action.
