SpecialKids.Company is excited about its recent international contribution to children in need. We were able to facilitate the donation of 1,100 Wonsie bodysuits to children of special needs in Palestine. The chosen charity for the donation was ABCD - Action around Bethlehem Children with Disability.
ABCD is a UK registered charity operating in Palestine/The Occupied Territories and the Gaza Strip. Their vision is to provide medical aid, rehabilitation programs (mental and physical), educational programs and other tailored individual needs regardless of their gender, race, or creed in order to live life to their fullest and to participate in their local communities.
ABCD works with several partners and the three listed below are where the Wonsie garments were distributed.
BASR have kindly shared a couple of photos of the children wearing them - not an easy task, we were told as the kids were breaking up for school holidays and ran off to show their parents!
Representatives of ABCD: Edmond Shehadeh, Director of BASR; Val Jourdan MBE & ABCD Founder and Trustee; Georgina Mortimer - Chairman ABCD have graciously and individually extended their appreciation to Dr. Barakat and Wonsie UK for such a gesture.
On behalf of Wonsie UK and Wonsie Australia, it has been an honour to be the vehicle to make such a difference to so many children with special needs and their families.
