Save The Date Annual Dinner 2016

      …helping children reclaim their childhoods January 2016 Dear Friends of PfP, It’s that time of year again.  If you’re anywhere near Philly, mark your calendars for our annual dinner, the evening of SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 2016 We are so excited about this fundraiser, as it promises to be a spectacular evening. For starters, back by popular demand, both Remi Kanazi and Farah Siraj will join us! Both artists took our breath away in past events and we feel so privileged to have them back, in the same evening no less! Remi is a spoken word artist.  His powerful, defiant, gut-punching poetry is profoundly human and it will break your heart at the same time that it provokes your own sense of power.  Farah Siraj’s ethereal voice is entrancing and enchanting

Nov 2015 Holiday Appeal Take 2

  …helping children reclaim their childhoods November 15, 2015 Dear Friends of PfP, Our website was hacked the day after we sent our annual letter appeal.  We had such a time getting (and keeping) the website back up, but it seems to be okay now.  We hope. So we’re sending out the same letter again. 🙂 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

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.
