Madison-Rafah Annual Fundraising Drive

Al Samud Playground

This year we are collaborating again with Playgrounds for Palestine to install the Al Samud Playground at a kindergarten on Shuhada Street in Hebron, in the West Bank area of Palestine.

This new playground will be adjacent to the one we helped install at the Qortuba Elementary School in 2016 (Select “Qortuba” at Playgrounds for Palestine).

The Al Samud playground will serve 32 students ages 3 to 5 who live nearby. The area is constantly threatened by militant Israeli settlers who, under the protection of the Israeli army, seek to drive Palestinian families out of the Old City and seize their land and properties. The playground is a rare outdoor play space for the children, but currently lacks equipment. In recent months both children and playground have come under physical attacks.

 Help change this . . .. . . into THIS!

Our friends in Hebron are asking us to help them hold and improve this critical play space by installing playground equipment. The total cost will be around $7,000. Materials and labor will be sourced as locally as possible to support the Palestinian community.
