The Philadelphia chapter of the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee honored Playgrounds for Palestine at its 25th anniversary banquet on April 28, 2007 at the Renaissance Hotel Philadelphia Airport. Mr Naim Ayoub and Mr Abed Awad, Esq. were also awarded for their community activism. The Syrian Ambassador to the United States, H.E. Dr Imad Moustapha delivered the keynote address followed by a fun evening of dabkeh and music.
All of us at PfP are very honored and grateful for this recognition. We hope it will serve to further raise awareness of the desperate conditions that Palestinian children are forced to endure under Israeli military occupation, which has been condemned universally by the international community and human rights
