This World Humanitarian Day, we're putting a spotlight on the women humanitarians who dedicate their lives to making the world a better place. Women humanitarians with Humanity & Inclusion are committed to making the world a healthier, safer, happier, and more inclusive space for people with disabilities. And for that, we are incredibly grateful! Today, we're highlighting some of our inspiring colleagues from around the globe.

Three years ago, Bharati left her hospital job and joined Humanity & Inclusion's community based rehabilitation center in Nepal. Today, she works with beneficiaries like Nishan (pictured above), where she provides physical therapy and orthopedic fittings, making it possible for him to stand tall.

Saud is a physical therapist who works with Syrian refugees in Jordan. Through rehabilitation exercises, she helps civilians who have been injured in conflict regain strength—both body and mind—so they can stand tall.

Colombia's conflict zones are littered with mines. Yeiny, 26, is doing something about it. Working as a deminer with Humanity & Inclusion in the Andes Cordillera area, she is committed to clearing unexploded weapons leftover from war and keeping her community safe.

Five years before this photo was taken, Grace, 23, was forced to flee South Sudan. Since then, she's been living in the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya. Humanity & Inclusion met Grace and trained her as a physical therapist. "I never want to do anything else again," she says with a smile. Today, she helps many children with disabilities and can financially support her six siblings.
