Support for UNRWA’s COVID-19 Educational Response

Thanks to our wonderful donors, Playgrounds for Palestine was able to use some funds to support the UNRWA’s response to COVID-19 in the Gaza Strip for education. Children were able to return to schools in Gaza the week of August 8 through UNRWA’s efforts. UNRWA gave a shout-out to Playgrounds for Palestine on their facebook page to thank our incredible supporters for PfP’s contributions! Click here for the link to the video!

We wish you all health …

On April 21st, Playgrounds for Palestine sent a survey to our donors about using some of our funds for a COVID-19 emergency direct aid.  The response from our supporters was overwhelmingly in the affirmative.    Families throughout Palestine have been hard hit by the pandemic, particularly those who rely on income from day labor in Israel.  The villages of East and West Toura, southwest of Jenin are no exceptions.  They were historically agricultural communities that produced wheat, olives, tobacco, and various produce.  However, as Israel confiscated nearly all village farmlands in the early 2000s, breadwinners were forced to work in Israel as day laborers.  Since the pandemic lockdown took effect in early March, few have been able to work and families have been facing severe shortages. To help alleviate some of the hardship, PfP worked with the village council to …

“After the ‘Cast lead’ attack on Gaza, PfP shared a video of the kids finally able to go outside where there still stood a (PfP) playground. ย It still brings tears to think about the joy of those kids swarming the playground… ย It really brought home the great work PfP does. “
