Description : The loss of a limb brings a lot of challenges, not only physical but also mental.

Since 2011, communities in Kachin State have been living with the impacts of conflict. Among other things, the ICRC helps those affected by landmines to participate fully in society.

The physical rehabilitation centre provides access to rehabilitation services for all communities, playing an important role in ensuring that people with physical disabilities can live in dignity. The ICRC also promotes socio-economic inclusion by providing vocational training, promoting sports and supporting service users to set up small businesses.
