The ICRC MoveAbility Foundation is a development organization that aims to improve physical rehabilitation capacities in low- and middle-income countries, and thus remove barriers faced by persons with disabilities.

Our main goal is to maintain and increase access to quality and sustainable physical rehabilitation services.

We also promote socio-economic integration for people living with disabilities. As a first step towards their integration, we focus on their initial needs in terms of physical rehabilitation.
