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 in the legacy of service that he left for us.

Our love and condolences to his family.

  1. I am very sad to hear of Salah’s death. He was a beacon of compassion, competence and courage in a difficult world. During the short time I was able to work with him to create a play place at Aida he overcame all obstacles and helped make it a reality with the participation of children, local workers and the people of the community.

    1. Thank you Sam. We are devastated by his loss but will continue to work in Aida and in other communities Salah connected us too. It was a privilege to work with both you and him.

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.
