Progress on the Playground at Asira Shamaliya

✨PLAY, WHILE IT CANNOT CHANGE THE EXTERNAL REALITIES OF CHILDREN’S LIVES, CAN BE A VEHICLE FOR CHILDREN TO EXPLORE AND ENJOY THEIR DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES AND TO CREATE, EVEN FOR A BRIEF TIME, A MORE JUST WORLD WHERE EVERYONE IS AN EQUAL AND VALUED PARTICIPANT✨  

Hedy Epstein

It is with great sadness to learn that Hedy Epstein, a dear friend of Palestine, is gravely ill. All of us at Playgrounds for Palestine extend love and warmth to Hedy and her family. PfP was approached by Hedy’s closest friends who would like to dedicate a playground in celebration of Hedy’s life. Below is the text we were asked to post from her friends: Hedy left us on Thursday, May 26, 2016. She will be missed by those of us who knew and loved her and by many others who never met her but who loved her for her infectious smile, her indomitable spirit, and her unfailing dedication to protesting human rights abuses in Palestine and wherever she saw them. Several of us, along with Playgrounds for Palestine, are working on a children’s playground dedicated to the life and legacy of this …

Remembering Salah Ajarma, our beloved brother

On July 14th, Playgrounds for Palestine joined friends and family to remember Salah Ajarma, our dear friend, comrade, and brother who passed away in April 2021. Salah was an integral member of PfP and over the years he became family to all of us. He was a man of integrity, passion, and unwavering commitment to justice and his country. He dedicated his life to empowering his community, especially young people, and in the process created a school, a kindergarten, and spectacular community center in the heart of Aida refugee camp, where young people could go for recreation, music, art and dance lessons, after school help, and more. He touched so many lives, and all of us are better people for having known him. We miss him terribly, but we will continue
