Background and Context
The Welfare Association is in the process of implementing a four year project “Empower marginalized communities in South Lebanon”. The project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund in the UK and includes Data base component focused on Palestinian refugee families living in the camps and gatherings of the Tyre area in South Lebanon.
An IT specialist will create a database, with definitions following World Health Organisation (WHO) standards as closely as possible. The database will be updated and managed by (Palestinian Women Health Organization) PWHO staff members. This will facilitate the tracking of CBR interventions, as well as create a baseline of knowledge and serve to influence the design of future CBR activities, by recording the improvements of activities of daily life and other measures.

WHO/UNESCO/ILO guidelines:
“supporting people with disabilities to maximize their physical and mental abilities, to access regular services and opportunities, and to become more active contributors to the community and society at large; activating communities to promote and protect human rights of people with disabilities for example by removing barriers to participation; facilitating capacity building, empowerment and community mobilization of people with disabilities and their families.”[1]
The project will specifically target the families of CWD (Children with Disabilities), aged 0-4, with the aim of preventing further health problems and ensuring that skills and interventions are provided early in life.
The project will benefit some of the most disadvantaged people, in an already highly marginalised population in 9 Palestinian gatherings and 3 Palestinian refugee camps located in South Lebanon, which are known for being among the poorest in the entire country.
