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.

Lynne Al-Sad and Hannah's ABCD Walk

In August, Lynne and her daughter Hannah, embarked on a walk in memory of her husband, Heidar with donations made given to ABCD. Here is an extract from Lynne, describing their walk.

"Our walk went exceptionally well and despite the awful weather forecasts and the inclement weather most of the country seemed to be swathed in, we enjoyed beautiful conditions (even if rather blowy on the Saturday) and most importantly, did not get really wet once! ​​

We had just got back to the car after 16 miles on Sat (some very kind friends were acting as our taxi for the weekend) and at that point the heavens opened and there was a torrential downpour and we were sooooo thankful! Yesterday we had a half-day available as Hannah needed to head back to London by early evening, so we pressed on and did another 9 miles, making the total 25, so we were tired but very happy, especially as it had been so enjoyable and through some breathtaking land and seascapes.

It has been both wonderful and very humbling and we feel God truly blessed us, especially as Hannah arrived Friday evening feeling quite unwell and I wondered if she was going to be able to do it al all, and any bad wind and rain storms occurred during the night. We have some very precious memories from this event, and, as you had suggested, we had plenty of lovely quiet "pondering" time too. ABCD was also very much in our minds."

Lynne and her daughter raised £750 for ABCD.

​Thank you.​
