    Story

    The Palestinian Society for Care and Development is collecting funds for Al-Amari's Camp's annual children's Summer Camp to help integrate refugee youth with disabilities.

    Lasting for 3 weeks in July (7th - 26th), the Summer Camp provides activities to 150 of the most socially disadvantaged children in the camp, ranging from 8-13 years, including 50 children with disabilities for whom access to resources is increasingly limited. Helping children with disabilities participate in recreational activities has an immeasurable positive effect on their personal development and quality of life, while promoting acceptance and tolerance in wider society.

    The Summer Camp has been running successfully since 2007, yet receives no regular funding. Therefore each year it is necessary to raise funds in order to continue a project that has become a fundamental part of the lives of many children living within the camp.

    It temporarily alleviates some of the financial burdens on the families by:

    • Providing the children with breakfast everyday, and uniforms for the activities.

    • Providing parents with childcare during the summer months.

    • Giving participants the opportunity to leave the refugee camp and experience places otherwise inaccessible.

    While the aim of the camp is to provide an enjoyable experience for each child, there are also opportunities for the children to develop their interpersonal skills and learn in an informal setting. Activities include but are not limited to: sports games, handicrafts classes, painting and drawing, educational field trips, dancing, and watching educational films with a following discussions.

    All of our activities give the children an exciting time to distract them from stress, provide psychological relief from anxieties that build up from the day-to-day realities of living in a refugee camp, and build lasting friendships which are invaluable for their futures.

    We understand that the time limit is short for the funding of this project, and are extremely grateful for any donations that you are able to give.
