Physical Rehabilitation Programme: Annual Report 2013

Physical rehabilitation is an important part of the rehabilitation process. It is not an objective in itself but an essential part of fully integrating people with disabilities in society. Restoration of mobility, the guiding force of all ICRC physical rehabilitation projects, is the first step towards enjoying such basic rights as access to food, shelter and education, finding a job and earning an income and, more generally, having the same opportunities as other members of society.
