Escape from Syria without eyesight

Fleeing is particularly difficult for people with disabilities. Like Odey*, for example. The blind musician from Rakka in Syria came to Germany in 2015 with help from a friend from Aleppo. Two years later he brought his wife and daughter to Germany.

In Munich/Germany, the alliance organisation Handicap International supports refugees and migrants with disabilities through counselling and courses as part of the "Crossroads" project. Oley has been blind since his childhood.

Refugees with disabilities or chronic illnesses often need special help to integrate. Many suffer from the consequences of injuries in war and crisis zones. Our member organisation Handicap International, looks after these people in Munich. Many of those affected come regularly and take part in various courses or receive advice. Ideally, they are supported until they are able to achieve their goals on a mobile and independent basis.

The organisation helps with wheelchairs, canes for the blind, computer and German courses, Braille or Excel courses. Handicap International also offers advice on disability related topics as well as for carers and relatives.

Thank you very much for supporting these relief efforts with your donation.
