Playgrounds for Palestine UK
Building playgrounds with love
You did it!
You raised an incredible £5174 plus gift aid through our Big Give campaign which means thanks to you, another playground can be built in Palestine in 2022.
Thank you for believing in our work, for donating even when times are hard, and for giving children in Palestine the chance to play, learn and just
be kids. You were the difference. You hit the button. You built a playground. Thank you.
Buy Ethical Gift Cards
Skipping ropes, sports balls, basketball hoops and chalk - these are all things that many of us take for granted, but many children in Palestine have none of these things. Buying an ethical gift card for someone you love helps children in Palestine enjoy their childhood.
Gaza trauma highlights need for play
66 children were killed in the 11-day war, while 241 lost one or both of their parents and at least 470 were injured. Some now face permanent or long-term disabilities. The homes of 5,400 were destroyed and those of over 42,000 damaged. 72,000 were displaced to relatives’ homes or UNRWA schools. As many as 400,000 now struggle to access water.
Playgrounds can seem irrelevant in the face of loss and injury on this scale. But children’s need for play is profound – and never more so than when trying to move on from what Euro-Med describes as ‘the sounds of bombs and the horrifying images of blood and destruction’.
