We had such a time getting (and keeping) the website back up, but it seems to be okay now. We hope.

…helping children reclaim their childhoods December 1, 2015 Dear Friends of PfP, In 2015, PfP built seven playgrounds in Palestine, serving an estimated 4,500 children in different villages. We also launched a Play Therapy program in Gaza and built an amphitheatre in Mashjar Juthour. In 2016, Al Yasmin Society playground for children with disabilities is our top priority, now that the center is nearly complete. It has been our great privilege, thanks to you, to witness the joy these playgrounds inspire in young lives. This holiday season, we honor and celebrate their childhoods, all of them. And we bring you the names of three little boys in particular who touched us all deeply.
