Focus: Rehabilitation and rights for those with disability

EJ-YMCA Rehabilitation Programme seeks to socially and economically reintegrate people with disabilities and those traumatised as a result of political violence. They take a holistic approach by addressing vocational and psychosocial needs as well as enabling people to understand and obtain their rights. They also work to create an accepting and supportive communities by carrying out education around disability through workshops and general awareness-raising. This is in the West Bank and East Jerusalem areas: Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Hebron, Jericho, Ramallah, Nablus, Salfeet, Jenin& Tubas and Tulkarem & Qaqilya.

WDR believes it is important to walk alongside the most marginalised and this is often in places where there is conflict.

A member of the WDR committee visited Nader at EJ-YMCA in 2016.

We pray that you will continue to move in Israel/Occupied Palestine and that your peace will reign over all. God we pray for justice and equality and trust that you are at work in this country. We pray for the Director of EJ-YMCA, Nader Abu Amsha; God won’t you guide, strengthen and equip him as he serves you in his role. We pray that EJ-YMCA will be a source of light, peace and hope and that through it, more people will come to know you. Amen.
