Proposed Action

In this regard GLRC shall collaborate with the concerned Great Lakes Region Governments, International Development partners, co-operate bodies, donors, and concerned community organizations, to mobilize resources and make optimal use of available resources to reach the greatest number of disabled persons in the most economic way.

The economical status of the majority of disabled persons is very low. They are located mainly in villages to where they relocate as soon as disability strikes as they can no longer sustain themselves in towns and cities. In this state of disability, they often depend on support from the enlarge village family system or sustain a very difficult solo village life. As most of the rehabilitation services are located in towns and cities, these services will not be accessible to them without special mobilization.

Rehabilitation medical services have not been a priority for most developing countries including those in the Great Lakes Region. Training and service funding has been inadequate. Most services are rendered by International charities and NGOs. These charities often come in for specific time often pull out without sufficient preparation for continuity. This leads to programs being restarted at great cost to the rehabilitation services and to the clients. Currently the Rehabilitation services in the Great Lakes Region cover less than 20% of the required need.
