As we reflect on the accomplishments and milestones of CBM in the region Asia and Americas, it is with great pleasure that I present to you our annual report. This report summarises our unwavering dedication, resilience, and commitment to serving individuals with disabilities in some of the most vulnerable communities around the world. 

The year 2022 was a transformative period for CBM as we continued to innovate and drive forward our mission of ensuring equal rights and opportunities for persons with disabilities. Despite the challenges posed by a rapidly evolving global landscape, we remained steadfast in our pursuit of excellence and achieved remarkable progress. 

One of our key achievements in 2022 was the expansion of our programmes and services, which reached even more individuals in need. Whether it was providing access to quality healthcare, promoting inclusive education, or empowering persons with disabilities through livelihood opportunities, CBM's impact was felt in countless lives. Our dedicated team worked tirelessly to forge partnerships with local communities, governments, and organisations, strengthening our collective efforts in creating a more inclusive society. Together, we implemented innovative strategies, advocated for policy changes, and raised awareness about the rights and capabilities of persons with disabilities. 

Another significant achievement for the region in 2022  is that our core activities reached a larger audience, with a 57% increase compared to 2021, impacting a total of 5.2 million people. Asia & Americas played a crucial role, contributing 58% to CBM‘s global data for 2022. 

As we look ahead to the future, we recognise the ever-increasing need to address the barriers faced by persons with disabilities in a sustainable manner. We remain committed to advancing our programmes, scaling up our initiatives, and collaborating with like-minded organisations to create a more inclusive and accessible world for all. 

On behalf of CBM Asia and America's team, I invite you to delve into our annual report, where you will discover the remarkable achievements, impactful projects, and inspiring stories that have shaped our journey in 2022.
