Ma’an lil-Hayat (Together for Life), Bethlehem, is the first and only wool-felting project in Palestine. Founded in August 2009, people with and without intellectual disabilities make felted-wool ornaments, nativity sets, and other gift items. Raw wool is purchased from local women farmers near Bethlehem. A project of the International Federation of L’Arche Communities, Ma’an lil-Hayat, with 23 producers, “is a place where we discover and share our gifts through relationships of friendship and trust.” Workers are given a weekly stipend, experiencing the joy of earning money through working. Maha Ghareeb, director, and Suha, a speech therapist came to Scotland in 2011. Hadeel has funded 2 electric carding machines for Ma’an, who are now in new premises and hoping to get funding for a new , more industrial size electric carding machine.
