In Europe, 75 to 100 million people have a disability. This is more than 10% of the population. They have received legal recognition. Since the start of this century, several Christian organizations who work with people with disabilities have formed a network.
We would like to strengthen our network and to become more effective in on our aim to reach out to people with disabilities in Europe and raising awareness in our churches to become more inclusive.
First of all, we would like to make a survey of the reality of disability ministries in Europe.

Well done Therese and EDN staff!
How.. ?? How !!?? It is only just to do it..I have an handicaped son, now 27, who cannot see and speak since his birth..he had not enough ..compliance, oxygene..and an epilepsy since than..but, he can hear, walk, a little serve for his neccesaarie like take his hand for eating..but not for serving properties..and he enjoy hearing music, making drumms. .. and to be together with others..if it not to loud for so long..and he likes to be in a church or community, but is not allways accepted..that’s a pity. , but he likes the friendship of his parents, his father, that ‘s me and his mother..and his younger brother..and grandma..and some special friends..but that is not ‘naturally#, that is is..
It’s about letting others be what they are, isn’t it? Appreciate each other as valuable not dependent on his usefulness how society may look at it. See in Tour 4 how Hüg experienced how he found peace in the presence of a young boy who could not speak but teach him a sixth language.
What about organising a group of Gospel people with disability?
That would be great.
great, if you like get in contact to us and share your idea.
