Nursing care for traumatized children in Bethlehem

by Children of Peace Foundation

Summary

Children of Peace funds schooling and therapy for 30 children, age 5-17, in the Bethlehem area of Palestine. These children have been physically, mentally or emotionally traumatized by the conflict in the region and can not find adequate care in the standard school system. Care will include regular medical screenings, vision, dental and hearing testing, nutritional assessments, in-home visits and emergency response needs. The nursing care provider has been identified but funds are needed.

Challenge

Children in the Bethlehem area suffer high emotional and behavioral problems impacting their general health and well-being. Providing these children with adequate care enables them to interact with their community in a productive and healthy way. We support the only alternative school with a therapeutic day treatment program in the area.

Solution

These children currently do not have regular nursing care; this project will provide planned health services to those most in need. If funded, a nurse will closely monitor the children's health and make adjustments and improvements as needed. Working alongside the families, the nurse can provide education assistance and support as emergencies arise.

Long-Term Impact

With an expected health regimen implemented, the children's health will greatly improve and the potential for disease will be reduced. With regular medical support and education, the lives of the families and their surrounding community can also improve. We serve the only alternative school with a therapeutic day treatment program in this region so it is imperative for the future of these children and their families that it continues.
