“Just two days after some of us returned from a trip to the Holy Land, we saw a full page article in a national newspaper about Susan and her work for Playgrounds for Palestine. We got in touch and many months later, after much hard work, the UK branch of Playgrounds for Palestine was born! All of us are committed to helping children experience the joys of childhood. All of us believe that together we can make a difference, however small, to children’s lives.

“We have been touched by the warmth and generosity shown by people in the UK to our newly formed UK registered charity – the ability to help children in Palestine clearly means a lot to many. We feel privileged to help build playgrounds which are such an essential part of childhood.
“We would love to hear from anyone in the UK or Europe who feels the same. You can get in touch with us through our website https://playgroundsforpalestine.org/ and please do like us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/playgroundsforpalestineuk/  It would be great to hear from you!”
