12-year-old Fortune has very low vision. He attends a school for visually impaired children in Ndola, Zambia. He was identified and examined by our partner Kitwe Central Hospital, and received glasses and a telescope to help him see better.

On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, CBM urges everyone to acknowledge persons with disabilities and enable them to participate in all aspects of life.

You may not see us, but we are here.

Invisible and excluded. With this art installation in Berlin, CBM wants to shine a light on the one billion people with disabilities worldwide. With no or very little access to education, employment and health care, they are often overlooked and forgotten. We call on all individuals, institutions and politicians not to close their eyes and to stand up for the inclusion of people with disabilities.
