ABCD is dedicated to improving the quality of life of those children and young adults who suffer from physical, mental and psychological disabilities in Palestine/The Occupied Territories and the Gaza Strip. ABCD sponsors treatment for those in need regardless of gender, race or creed, helping them to reach their full potential, to live life with dignity and to take their rightful place in their community.
