COVID-19 Update

A second wave of Covid 19 has hit the West Bank - the areas deeply effected are the Hebron and Greater Bethlehem Districts. Once again the ABCD funded rehabilitation centres in Jalazone and Al Arroub refugee camps have had to close. Our professional therapists are doing their utmost to suppport the vulnerable children remotely. The number of cases and deaths reported are significantly higher than the first wave of infection. We send the Palestinian people our sympathies.
