Taking Action on Ukraine

The human rights of Ukrainian people with disabilities continue to be violated, their lives endangered, and their needs discarded. These atrocities require a global action. 

GADRA understands that for global impact we must all begin locally and apply full force of our combined efforts on behalf of Ukrainians with disabilities. 

 In recent days GADRA has:

  • GADRA has deployed their full capacity in a comprehensive response to this disaster
  • Continued to support Fight For Right to manage their caseload of over 400 people needing evacuation to safe and appropriate destinations 
  • Engaged with global agencies also interested in action on behalf of people with disabilities
