HRDC is the one and only program of the Friends of the Disabled (FOD), a non-governmental organization. The setting was initiated in 1985 by Terre des Hommes (TdH), a Switzerland based charitable trust specialized in children’s issues. Its management was handed over to FOD by TdH in 1992. Since the very starting, FOD/HRDC has been serving children with physical disabilities by enabling their abilities so they can assert their rights for mobility and functional independence. FOD/HRDC is the leading treatment and rehabilitation program (now approved by the Ministry of Health and Population, Nepal Government) for providing comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation to children with physical disabilities.

The core purpose of FOD is changing the plight of children with physical disabilities through HRDC. Children and their guardians are attended with compassion and encouraged to actively participate in their therapies in whatever way possible. They are taught simple rehabilitation methods that can be followed-up at home. Additionally, they are educated on preventive measures that can be adopted in their communities to minimize disabilities in future.
