We’re building two playgrounds in Lebanon’s refugee camps, this summer!

We’re very excited to report to our supporters that PfP will build two playground in Lebanon late this summer. In cooperation with MECA (Middle East Children’s Alliance) and ANERA (American Near East Refugee Aid) , the first system has already been purchased for a preschool and it includes two separate units, a “hide-away hut” and a full play module for ages 2-5 years. We’ve created a page for this playground on our website, where you’ll find more photos and which we’ll update as we get closer to implementation (https://playgroundsforpalestine.org/our-playgrounds.php?ID=9). The second playground will serve a wider range of ages and will likely be built in the Nahr el Bared Camp.

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.
