Stories of our work
At the centre of what we do are the people who benefit from our programmes - men, women, boys and girls living with disabilities in the poorest places of the world. On these pages, you can meet some of the people we've helped, read about the challenges they have faced and discover how their lives have changed thanks to CBM supporters.
