ABCD improves the lives of children with disabilities
across Palestine regardless of faith, race or gender


We remain independent, focussing on the needs of the children our partners work with.


We ensure child-centred holistic care remains at the heart of everything we do .


We have hope that sustainable and accessible care is possible for all.


Working with children and their families in their communities enables generational change.


Autumn Bulletin 2017

ABCD works through Palestinian partners, the Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation (BASR) based in Beit Jala, The Sheepfold in Beit Sahour and two UNWRA Refugee Camps in Jalazone and Nour Shams.

Ahlan-wa-Sahlan, the greeting which echoes throughout every day one spends amongst the Palestinians. Rather tamely we tend to translate the greeting as ‘welcome.’ However, since hospitality is the genus of Arab culture, the roots of the words carry far richer meanings – not only ‘welcome’ but ‘now you are part of our family and may your life with us be smooth.’ These words are those of Professor Donald Nicholl, former rector of Tantur Ecumenical College and former ABCD trustee.
