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.

Daniel Burton

Daniel Burton is an Anglican Team Rector in Salford, Greater Manchester. Originally from the Rossendale Valley in East Lancashire, he read theology at Oxford and then worked for two years in a Palestinian Children’s Home in Ramallah in the mid 1980s. This gave him a love of the Middle East and for 20 years he was a trustee of the charity “Embrace” – formerly known as BibleLands. In that capacity he led many pilgrimages and visits to the Middle East. Before working in Salford he spent 10 years in parish ministry in South Wales followed by 9 years in North Manchester. He is excited about becoming a trustee for ABCD.
