Action around Bethlehem Children with Disability

Improving the quality of life of children with disabilities across the West Bank

The Centre for Rehabilitation Al Arroub Camp

ABCD was approached by Al Arroub Refugee Camp Rehabilitation Centre for help and they have become our latest partner in 2019.

Nur Shams Refugee Camp

The children clearly enjoy their treatments – to watch a child of four who has never walked take his first steps, initially aided by the parallel bars and then to launch off unaided is truly wonderful

Music Therapy

Music Therapy is a powerful medium which helps children who may struggle to express themselves. This project was initiated in 2015 by ABCD Trustee and Music Therapist, Canon Claire Tillotson, in conjunction with Paediatric Psychiatrist Dr Souha Shehadeh, who leads the Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation (BASR) Mental Health Team.

World renowned screenwriter and director, Mike Leigh, is lending his support to ABCD Bethlehem.

Mr Leigh – who brought us iconic hits such as Abigail’s Party, Nuts in May, Secrets & Lies and Mr Turner – has long been concerned about the welfare of innocent Palestinians and says: “…I wholeheartedly support ABCD Bethlehem’s crucial work in helping children with disabilities in Palestine to receive the vital therapy ad medical support they need to improve their quality of life.

“Without ABCD, these children are helpless. They need your support. Please make a donation, or take part in their fundraising events.”

ABCD Chair and Founder, Val Jourdan, says: “We are delighted that Mike Leigh has chosen to support ABCD and we hope it encourages other people to get involved in our fundraising activities or to make a donation to help fund our work helping vulnerable children during this challenging period.”
