The Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre serves children from across the West Bank through our Outreach Program. Making an average of 60 outreach visits and assessing over 1300 children a year, the Centre is able to support families that do not have access to adequate medical expertise. Children in need of specialized treatment are referred to the rehabilitation Centre in East Jerusalem.
The Outreach team also offers professional training to local clinicians and partner organizations, ensuring that future generations will have access to appropriate attention and care.
