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.

St Augustines Church, Downend, Bristol

St Augustine's Catholic Church in Downend, Bristol, have adopted ABCD as their international project for the year and have held numerous fundraising events to promote and raise funds for us.

The lovely people at St Augustines have had cake sales galore for ABCD. And we are not talking any old cakes! This talented group put The Great British Bake Off to shame with beautiful cupcakes and the amazing ABCD showstopper! The cake was an exact model of their church, even to the correct number of parking spaces outside , the correct number of bars across each window and the green spire of the church.

​But their generosity and support did not end there. As well as cake sales, St Augustines also embarked on a sponsored walk from the doors of their church to the doors of Bath Abbey, 14 miles away. The walk was led by 73 year old Maureen Merrifield. Just brilliant!

​The total amount raised for ABCD during 2016 was an astonishing £3297.72. Thank you to all who participated.
