Love Into Action...
... is a UK charity making a difference for families struggling with severe disabilities in the Middle East
We work directly with families who have a relative with a cognitive disability and help them to see the difference it can make to the whole family, when the disabled individual finds, and plays their part in, family life. Often those affected by cognitive disabilities can be seen as a burden to their families, as there is very little expectation that they can do anything of any help. All individuals have the ability to learn something, and so we raise the expectations of families and show them the possible capability of their disabled relative and so they are less of a burden and more of a valued family member.
We are currently undertaking major changes to the charity as we begin the process of transitioning much of the work from Bethlehem in the West Bank, to Jordan. This change will allow us to develop projects that can endure the upheavals of life in the Middle East, as well as continuing to support in a new way the families in Bethlehem where the work first began.
