On World Humanitarian Day, development NGO CBM will be releasing a brand new app that will be the first of its kind.

The objective of the app is to provide field workers with guidelines and instructions on how to respond and aid people with disabilities during perhaps natural disasters or day-to-day circumstances.

The app offers many solutions and different ways to respond to situations, including information on ramps, washrooms, and communication.

Many professionals along with humanitarian responders and disability experts have given their feedback and advise on how to implement the app, and make sure it truly benefits members of society.

The app is focused on aiding those in developing parts of the world, as resources and information is limited. The app allows field workers to quickly access correct research and information in order to assist people with disabilities during emergencies.
