Marathon Runner Raises Over £2.5k For Humanitarian Charity Abcd Bethlehem

George Lenon from South London ran in Sunday’s London Marathon for the charity ABCD Bethlehem. George completed the famous course in 3:27:54 and, in doing so, raised £2,661 for the charity.

The Agency is proud to be working with the UK-based humanitarian charity whose work helps to improve the lives of children with disabilities across Palestine regardless of faith, race or gender.

Money raised goes directly to help children living with disability in refugee camps in the West Bank, providing structured rehab programmes including physio, cognitive and family support, as well as supplying walking aids and equipment. Living with disability can be challenging in any environment but is greatly exacerbated by living in a refugee camp in the West Bank, now more so than ever before.

George commented; “I’ve seen through my work in the NHS how transformative high-quality rehabilitation & therapy can be for children living with disabilities.  I’m constantly impressed by what ABCD is able to achieve for families across Palestine with very limited resources and hope to raise as much as possible to support their work in 2024!”

Reverand Daniel Burton, in-coming Chair of Trustees adds: “I find it totally inspiring to see the huge efforts that our supporters will go to in order to help us to provide key services and support to children and their families living in the most challenging of conditions. ABCD’s rehab programmes enable children to transition into adulthood with greater confidence and minimal complications, improving their lives for the better.  On behalf of everyone at ABCD Bethlehem, I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to George.”
