The isolated Palestinian refugee camp of Mar Elias houses a foundation giving support to young children with disabilities. Just around the corner from the entrance to the run-down and busy camp, which is home to hundreds of Palestinian families, this one small foundation continues to prove that hope can shine through. The school has two schedules, one in the morning with students divided into classes, and another in the afternoon.Students attending the afternoon sessions have either severe health conditions, are subject to a special program, or didn't find places in the regular classes, since the waiting list at the foundation is long.In the institution is a family of dedicated staff, all working to create a supportive and rewarding atmosphere for the children.However, others with severe disorders will move on to other specialist institutions.
