Persons with disabilities are among the most disadvantaged, vulnerable groups in the world, according to the World Health Organization. Widespread poverty, excessive inequality, and flagrant abuse of their human rights are the major stumbling blocks to their development as equal citizens of their countries.
The Church is well positioned to be in a position of influence and voice to speak out against injustice toward persons made in the image of God and loved and cherished by Him in equal measure to any human being. HisAbility International is uniquely poised to offer training and skills to those caring for persons with disabilities. It also focuses on raising awareness of the abilities and needs of the locally disabled in churches worldwide, offering tools and resources to enable ministry.
As awareness is raised, local churches often realize that those with disabilities have not been in their view, and once they receive tools for ministry to these populations, they are willing and eager to engage.
