Restoring Dignity to Disabled Syrian Children and Young People in Lebanon

Place of the project:

Description of the project:

Since the start of the events in Syria and the displacement of thousands of Syrians  to Lebanon Mousawat felt the need to invest it’s long experience in the field of re-positioning of persons with disabilities, and in the treatment of war wounded people to prevent their disabilities from worsening.

From here Mousawat had launched in collaboration with Said Foundation in the late 2013 a project for Syrian disabled refugees in Lebanon. Mousawat’s rehabilitation professional will conduct a primary visit to fill out an assessment form that will collect basic information about the disabled person the type of disability the home environment and accessibility. These forms will then be assessed by the project staff to determine the type of intervention required for each CYP’s which will be delivered on the next visit.
