Challenge

According to a survey conducted in 2016 by the Noor Foundation, there are more than 150 children with special needs in the Palestinian refugee camps (Downs syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy). Over 70% are in the 12-25 age group and from economically disadvantaged. Our health center has the basic equipment but there are still needs to meet and challenges to overcome in order to expand the service and achieve a higher level of operational performance.

Solution

The Noor Foundation charity is located in Bethlehem and specializes in evaluation, diagnoses and treatment (early care, behavioral, speech, occupational, physical and family therapy and social work). The project will continue its best efforts to improve the service offered through the acquisition of additional medical equipment and supplies and the execution of new health programs.

Long-Term Impact

The first stage of the project is aimed at benefitting more than 150 families living in the refugee camps in Aida and Alazza camp in occuppied Palestine. We aim to provide direct assistance to the families of children with special needs, an improvement of the living conditions of the children and their families - and provide rehabilitation sessions for children with special needs: speech therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, osteopathy, and a special focus on children with Downs syndroms
