Abstract The current paper is a review-based analysis focusing on the disastrous crisis experienced by people with disabilities. Research has emphatically revealed that disasters and poorly planned disaster recovery and mitigation efforts can exacerbate these disparities, making it even more difficult for people with disabilities to cope both during and after an emergency. In camps and cities, displaced people with disabilities suffer substantial protection risks such as exploitation, physical and sexual abuse, discrimination, mockery, inequality, and neglect. Disaster risk mitigation relies heavily on emergency and preparedness planning, which now needs to involve and acknowledge people with disabilities. Leaders and decision-makers in government, industry, and civil society who are responsible for services that impact individuals with disabilities should recognize that they may be more vulnerable than the general population to dangers, disaster repercussions, and unjust treatment during or after the event. Providing proper care for persons with disabilities is a matter of equality, fairness, and justice, as well as a crucial reinforcement of civilized ideals.
