The Palestinian-Israeli conflict has claimed thousands of injured. The victims often suffer for years from the traumatic experiences. In addition to psychological injuries such as sleep disorders, depression, persecution mania or anti-social behaviour, many young people are physically handicapped. These impairments range from visual and perceptual disorders, walking disabilities to paraplegia. institutes with specialized medical rehabilitation are present in Palestine. After therapy, the young people are left with no prospects. Young people and their families are often left to their own devices. This is precisely where the YMCA East Jerusalem reintegration programme comes in.
CHF 90 is the cost of remedial education for a young person in Palestine. Thanks to this, young people with physical or mental disabilities can not only keep up with school, but also improve their chances of finding a job later on.
