Nursing care for traumatized children in Bethlehem

by Children of Peace Foundation

Hello, Supporters!

We hope you are having a great summer.

While students are currently on break from school until September, we could still use your support to ensure that funding to provide nursing care for is in place for the upcoming school year.

"Having a trained professional on site to monitor, address  and prevent any health issues that may pop up throughout the school year is not only a relief to the students, staff and families, it its vital to academic success," said Children of Peace founder Khaled Jaraysa. "A solid financial footing for this program would help to ensure the success of other programs for the upcoming school year."

We look forward to providing you with more updates as school resumes and we thank you for your continued support.

With gratitude,

The Children of Peace Foundation

Dear Supporters,

We hope that spring is off to a great start for you!

Thanks to your support, the children we serve have been able to receive nursing care on a daily basis. This program nicely complements our educational and healing programs.

"Having someone on-site to monitor the health of the children on a daily basis is a huge benefit," said founder Khaled Jaraysa. "Addressing minor health problems as they arise allows the students to fully focus and having someone on site in case of emergency is a relief to the staff."

Without your continued support, we are not able to keep this vital program afloat. Please consider giving what you can today.

With gratitude,

The Children of Peace Foundation

P.S.: Please stay tuned for our next update, coming soon, which will include some great photos!

Happy new year!


Classes have resumed this past week, after a holiday break, and 2013 is off to a great start.


Thanks to your support, we have been able to raise $660 so far! These vital funds will be put towards the associated costs of our school nurse/social worker making home visits to ensure the wellness of our students.


"Physical and emotional health is fundamental to both healing and educational success," said Khaled Jaraysa. "Our goal is to provide a holistic approach to education and healing. This program is perfectly aligned with that goal."


Home visits are only one aspect of the overall goal of the nursing care program. With your support, we will also continue to provide: regular wellness, hearing, vision, and dental screenings, nutritional assessments and emergency care.

We will post another report with more photos and additional updates shortly. In the meantime, please consider making a contribution to help the nursing care program sustain full flight.

With gratitude,
