The World Federation for Neurorehabilitation is concerned about growing political tensions in many regions of the world.

WFNR is a politically neutral, international organization which aims to reduce disability and suffering by means of applied science and innovative rehabilitation.

We have been successful for more than two decades in uniting people around the world with different religions, beliefs, philosophies, and ideologies in a joint effort to achieve these goals.

Any armed disputes unnecessarily increase the suffering of innocent people. Hostile activities are an offence to human intelligence and dignity. Our understanding of the human brain shows us that we must use intelligent means of communicating to solve conflict.

WFNR therefore appeals to all leaders in these conflicts to avoid war, seek negotiation and try to use the wonderful human mind to find peaceful and enduring solutions.
