Run by the Myanmar Red Cross Society (MRCS) with the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the centre offers physical rehabilitation services to people with disabilities across the south-east region of the country, including Kayin, Mon and Kayah states, and eastern Bago and Tanintharyi regions. The services are available for anyone in need, regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity or status. In 2022, the centre provided 10,172 physiotherapy sessions, including over 5,500 group sessions.
Ensuring its services are easily accessible by all, the HORC has designed a system for people to seek help through various channels, including their local Red Cross branches, and the mobile repair services programme and community repairmen network for servicing orthoses. The centre also reimburses transport costs for service users. In addition, the centre promotes the social integration of people with disabilities through para-sports and microeconomic initiatives.
