ABCD improves the lives of children with disabilities
across Palestine regardless of faith, race or gender


We remain independent, focussing on the needs of the children our partners work with.


We ensure child-centred holistic care remains at the heart of everything we do .


We have hope that sustainable and accessible care is possible for all.


Working with children and their families in their communities enables generational change.

We have worked with our long-term partners, BASR, for over 30 years.

Speech and language

Currently, ​ABCD supports the running of BASR's Community Based Rehabilitation Programme, who work across the Greater Bethlehem and Hebron region, and BASR's Music Therapy Programme.

ABCD’s particular area of interest and help is supporting the BASR’s Outreach Programme. The Outreach Team consists of a multi-disciplined team of professionals and health workers who work through local community centres, schools and with families stretching deep in to remote rural areas.

How We Help

ABCD helps to deliver:

  • Individual Needs Programme provides equipment such as adapted wheelchairs, walking aids, medical boots, made to measure supports for backs, and other joints, also hearings aids, eyeglasses, transport for treatment, short term rehabilitation therapy sessions, corrective surgery and home modifications. These needs are identified and assessed by the Outreach Team.
  • Initial diagnosis can be undertaken at BASR. Early diagnosis is vital to prevent later ccomplications. 
  • Treatment and a bepoke rehabilitation programme are delivered through BASR. Each child is accompanied by a family member, learning how to handle the child and their treatment at home
  • And much more!
