Love Into Action...
... is a UK charity making a difference for families affected by disabilities in the Palestinian Territories.
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.
Love Into Action is a very small charity and we rarely provide financial grants or items of monetary value to individuals as we would quickly run out of resources. We aim to come alongside of families to befriend, encourage, train and provide support. We currently help a number of organisations providing day care and practical activities.
At our Beit Yusef center in the Shepherds' Field area of Bethlehem, we are providing planned and crisis respite care (also known as short breaks) for families who have children (whether small or grown up) who have profound special needs / cognitive impairment
