The Princess Basma Centre is an outward expression of our baptismal covenant in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. It strives for justice and peace among all people and respect for the dignity of every human being. Established in 1965, the Princess Basma Centre serves all families in East Jerusalem and the West Bank — regardless of their religion — providing treatment, education, and hope for children who suffer from physical, mental, and cognitive disabilities.

The Centre’s school is fully inclusive and integrated, as children with and without disabilities study side-by-side. Because of you, children in the heart of conflict have hope, dignity, and a brighter future.
