Disabled Ex-Combatants in Rwanda Regain Their Autonomy and Rebuild Their Lives

The Rwanda Demobilization and Reintegration Commission, with support from the World Bank and development partners, spearheaded an effort to categorize ex-combatants by degree of permanent disability in order to offer them tailored support. Today, disabled ex-combatants are models of hope for the general disabled population of Rwanda. They are part of thriving cooperatives, live in adapted housing and enjoy a high degree of integration in the general population. This is the fourth in a series of videos about former combatants in Rwanda.
