Les Thèmes

MyHandicap Switzerland was founded in 2004 by Joachim lap and has its headquarters in Zurich. Since its inception, this independent national organization has managed to develop into an important institution for people with disabilities and their families. MyHandicap aims to facilitate life for the disabled and to promote their integration into society.

To this end, our non-profit organization operates the Internet platforms www.myhandicap.de, www.myhandicap.ch and www.myhandicap.com. These provide information which is particularly relevant for people with disabilities or serious illness. Here, those affected can find articles about a wide range of types of disabilities and chronic diseases. These include, for example, paralysis, amputation and prosthesis, stroke, diabetes, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, depression and dementia.

MyHandicap enables a worldwide exchange of experience. Through the worldwide network of participants in the MyHandicap community, people can exchange experiences and knowledge to the great benefit of handicapped and sick people, their families and friends. Thus we can bring together people who are faced with a particular challenge with those who have already mastered this problem. On the Internet platforms of MyHandicap, questions are answered, problems solved - and people meet people. As the largest platform for people with disabilities and serious illness, MyHandicap is pool of information and a communication space for sufferers all over the world.
