Former Superman actor Christopher Reeve is to visit Israel to give inspiration to survivors of bomb attacks, the country's press has reported.
Reeve has regained some feeling in his body
Reeve, who has been largely paralysed from the neck down since a riding accident in 1995, will make the trip later this month, the daily newspaper Yediot Aharonot reported.
It said the actor would meet a young wheelchair-bound survivor of a suicide bomb, with whom he has been corresponding.
He will take the message that "life doesn't end with a physical injury and that they can still live a full and interesting life," Yediot Aharonot said.
Reeve, 50, is also expected to meet an expert on the central nervous system the Weizmann Institute.
He defied expectations earlier this year when he recovered some feeling in his body.
Actively involved with groups like Save the Children and Amnesty International for decades, he is now chairman of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation.
He has continued acting and travels widely to give motivational talks.
Since September 2000, 750 Israelis have been killed by Palestinian armed groups, according to Amnesty International.
In the same period, more than 2,000 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the group says.
