{VIDEO} Get to Know…Ez Alden

Ez Alden is a 4.5 year old boy in the kindergarten at House of Hope. Ez cannot use his legs and relies on a wheelchair.

His mother is unable to find employment, and his father is a metalworker. His parents, concerned that they would not find a school that would accommodate Ez’s disability, learned about House of Hope through his physical therapist. Many children with special needs in the West Bank are not accepted into the overwhelmed local public schools, and instead are kept at home.
