The Islamic World Council on Disability and Rehabilitation (ICDR) stands for a universal conception of the universality of Islam, for the unity of its society, whose social concept is based on solidarity and social justice.
The ICDR recognizes the basic right of all persons to reach the highest level of independence and self-reliance, to perform activities fitting both their abilities and disabilities. The ICDR’s mission is therefore focused on improving the living standards of the disabled by propelling, motivating and sustaining them through innovative strategies so that they can: exercise their rights--including their right to self-determination; play an active role in their families, and develop the ability to lead an optimal independent lifestyle within the communities in which they live.

About the ICDR
A project of the Medical and Rehabilitation Consultancy House (MRCH), the ICDR was founded in 1996 for the purpose of working out ways for meeting disability needs across the Arab and Islamic worlds. It had a host of humanitarian goals set for preventing disabilities, ensuring early intervention, providing social rehabilitation, improving all the aspects to do with the living standards of the disabled, codifying their rights, and backing up their issues in all areas.
