  • Liz successfully completed her 10K run in Palestine, but the fundraising continues.....

     

    On 13th April Liz Coombes, music therapist and  manager of Project Beit Sahour took part in the 10K "Right to Movement" Running Event in Bethlehem Palestine to raise money for our continuing work in that part of the world.  The day dawned with a cloudless sky, and it proved to be one of the hottest days of Liz's time in Bethlehem.  Arriving in the starting area at 7am, Liz was treated to a vibrant atmosphere.  There was a mixture of Arabic music and club numbers pumping out on the sound system.  Spirits were high with a lot of enthusiastic dancing and flag waving.  After a physical warm-up on stage led by the organisers, they were off!

    The track wound through the town of Bethlehem, through one of the refugee camps and then doubled back into town.  The final 250 meters was a grueling uphill struggle, but Liz made it and, we are proud to say, won her age group!  She has the T shirt and medal.  Liz says she has never run in such high temperatures, but crowd support and the excitement of this new event spurred her on.

  • Recent update from Local Partners in Palestine

     

    We are delighted that one of our Local Partners, Samar, a Social Worker at the ELS school in Beit Sahour, took the opportunity to demonstrate to visitors from Canada how she uses music therapeutically with the children at the school. In a recent report staff told us they are running regular music sessions with groups to help them with their... “low self- confidence and hyperactivity”. They also added...“We think that the student’s behaviour has changed because all the class teachers have noticed an improvement on the students”.

    We are currently producing a newsletter to send to all our Local Partners at the 3 ELS schools in Beit Sahour, Bethlehem and Ramallah based on their reports to address any challenges they may be facing, as well as celebrating the many developments they have shared with us. In the meantime, we’d like to say how impressed we are with all their achievements to date. Keep up the excellent work!
