The Daughters of Charity in Bethlehem, Palestine – Vida Bannoura

Vida Bannoura and the Daughters of Charity in Bethlehem, Palestine work with children at a facility for abandoned, abused, and neglected babies and young toddlers; the only institution of its kind in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Due to their complex life conditions these infants and toddlers have different developmental delays and disabilities- physical, mental, social, behavioral, cognitive, intellectual, psychological, and emotional- and require rehabilitative therapy to return to their normal level of daily function.
