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.

Jalazone Refugee Camp

Jalazone Refugee Camp near Ramallah, opened in 1948 for 3,500 residents for displaced families, now houses 15,000.

The Camp occupies two square kilometres, the same footprint in 1948. Schools for Camp children, run by UNWRA (United Nations Works Relief Agency) had to be built outside the camp, presenting problems due to an Israeli Settlement, Bet El, nearby. The tension between the Camp’s residents and those of the Settlement is an everyday occurrence.

Life for refugee children in this camp is particularly harsh. Unemployment stands at 60%, there are high levels of disability with limited services. The supply of water to the camp is often rationed, and extreme poverty and overcrowding prevail.

Jalazone Rehabilitation Centre was in poor conditions and in dire need of refurbishment and equipment. ABCD has and refurbishes and extended treatment and provided up to date equipment.

  • Children with walking and movement difficulties
  • Mental disability
  • Hearing issues
  • Visual Impairment
  • Autism
  • Trauma Counselling
  • The salary of two therapists
