WFOT communication regarding Israel and Palestine

WFOT is acutely aware and continues to be incredibly saddened by the devastating events in Israel and Palestine. Although our fundamental beliefs mean that we are not able to take positions on political agendas of any nation, WFOT continues to advocate for the promotion and value of occupational therapy globally.

WFOT is not a direct aid organisation however we continue to work with international partners to meet global humanitarian needs and develop resources that member organisations and occupational therapists can utilise.

WFOT condemns all actions or circumstances that infringe on the rights of people and communities to live purposeful and engaged lives in safety and peace.
