Statement on the Crisis in the Middle East

We strongly condemn the heavy attacks by Hamas on Israel and mourn all victims (Israelis and Palestinians) in this terrible conflict. As an international aid organization, we are also active - as far as it is still possible - with aid projects in Gaza and the West Bank.

The need for humanitarian aid will inevitably increase and persons with disabilities are more dependent than ever on local support. We therefore appeal to the global community to give special consideration to persons with disabilities in their humanitarian assistance and to leave no one behind.
