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.

Field Trip October 2016

In October, 2016 Firas Sarhan led a field trip to ABCD's projects along with the Communications Team at ABCD. To read their report, click the button below.

In April, 2016 Firas Sarhan and Anthony Glaister engaged in our most recent field visit. The purpose of the visit was to ensure that ABCD's funding was being spent where it was needed and to ascertain what is still needed to be done.

Here is some of what they found.

Nour Shams' specialists treat upto 12 children per month with cerebal palsy, spinal injury and other physical and learning disabilites thanks to ABCD funding.
​In Jalazone, upto 20 children are treated with cerebral palsy or other physical and learning difficulties with ABCD funding.

​ABCD is making a huge impact on these children in terms of supportand introducing quality to their lives through offering comprehensive rehabilitation programmes.
