Our story

Every day, CBM is working to restore life to people living with disability in the world’s poorest countries. In 2012 CBM reached out to more than 31 million people who were living with or at risk of disability.

In developing countries, people with a disability are often unable to access the basics services such as education and healthcare, and are excluded from employment, and social and community activities.

Without these opportunities, people with disability often fall deeper into poverty and become more vulnerable to illnesses that can lead to further disability. Our work is focused on breaking this persistent cycle. Disability and poverty go hand in hand, so we tackle them together.

We’re working in over 70 countries to provide the kind of medical help that transforms lives – restoring the gift of sight, straightening twisted limbs, and making sure we keep young mothers and babies safe during childbirth. We also make sure we’re on the ground to provide immediate aid in times of emergency and give long-term support where it’s needed.

To have a lasting impact on the lives of the poorest men, women and children with disability, we encourage self-reliance and participation. We always work in partnership with local organisations, and we provide an important advocacy link to local and national governments and agencies. At home and overseas, we campaign tirelessly to change attitudes towards disability.  

We were formerly known as Christian Blind Mission – but now we do so much more! Over time, CBM’s work has widened from serving just people with vision impairment to giving all people with disabilities access to basic healthcare services and restoring life. CBM is now the world’s largest Christian organisation working with people with disabilities in the poorest places.
