Scientists have predicted for years that a global pandemic was inevitable. They warned that we were not prepared and that we needed to take steps to mitigate the impact. Unfortunately, their warnings went unheeded and we are now facing the dire consequences. One of the groups that has been hit the hardest by the Covid-19 pandemic is individuals with disabilities and their families. They are frequently pushed to the bottom of the priority list when it comes to receiving services and support during times of crisis.

'Coping and Thriving during the Global Disasters' book seeks to change that by raising awareness of their challenges and showcasing the efforts to help them in countries worldwide.

Let's learn from the wisdom provided by these individuals to prepare communities around the world to effectively act to support vulnerable individuals and their families during times of crisis, preventing them from being ignored or left behind.
