Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation (BASR)

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

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

  • Individual Needs Programme provides 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 and referred to us through BASR’s project manager.
  • Children can be admitted to BASR for initial diagnosis and treatment and set a rehabilitation programme. Each child is accompanied by their mother or family member, learning how to handle the child and his or her treatment at home
