The Farrar Center in Nablus
For the past few days, the delegation has been visiting the Farrar Center in Nablus, a special child rehabilitation treatment center operated by our partner organization, the Palestinian Medical Relief Committee. Our medical delegation has been seeing and treating patients and our non-medical members have been interviewing families about their struggle to obtain treatment for their children with special needs. The Occupation has caused severe restrictions on access to treatment for these children that is simply heartbreaking. But, the one constant that we have all observed is the extraordinary dedication of the families to caring for their children, made infinitely more challenging by the lack of resources imposed upon Palestinian society by the Occupation.
