Global Alliance for Disaster Resource Acceleration

Organizations led by people with disabilities are often left out of disaster relief funding from foundations, corporations and governments. When disability-led organizations are left out of funding and planning, people with disabilities are left without the support they need to maintain their health, safety independence, dignity and even their lives. This has already resulted in high death rates for people with disabilities in all disasters – including COVID-19.
