Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation


Human Resource Development:

•  Training the staff working at the CDCs in specific teaching techniques and behavior management.

•  BASR's professionals trained staff working with children with special needs from Gaza and Jordan in CBR and special education for a one- month period.

•  BASR's administrative staff participated in two-week workshop in management.

•  Paramedical professionals from BASR undertook a six month training at Sheba medical center relevant to their specialty.


The major difficulties that BASR encountered are related to the recurring closure of the areas, which hinders many patients from benefiting from our rehabilitation services. Besides, as a result of the deteriorating socio-economic conditions under the prevailing political situation, many patients could not afford to cover their treatment expenses which co-ersed BASR se expenses, particularly that referral by the Ministry Of Health lasts for only 15 days or a maximum of 30 days of hospitalization.

Another difficulty is related to lack of adequate funding for supporting the poor or social cases.
