With your support, we were able to finish our fundraising for a playground for the Jenin refugee camp. The children should have their bright, colorful, safe and fun playground by March!
Our new project is to raise $10,000 to add a playground to the Ush Ghurab Peace Park in Beit Sahour. Located in the West Bank, not far from Bethlehem, the people of Beit Sahour have taken what was a former Israeli military base, and is now a centerpiece for community members of all ages. It includes a cafeteria, soccer field, climbing tower and barbeque/picnic area, as well as room for performances like the Beit Sahour Nights Festival. But most importantly, it represents hope and the reclaiming of territory formerly used to oppress the local population. The people of Beit Sahour have accomplished a lot, and we can support their efforts to expand the Peace Park. We hope that you'll help us!
