First bricks for the reconstruction of the Children’s Land in Gaza!
The construction of the first block of the Children’s Land, the woman center, proceed quickly: Sunday, March 29th, the company responsible for the construction of the new center in the Um al Nasser village in Gaza, started the first work on site. The first materialsfor the constructions were brought and the excavation for the foundations started.
In the following days the first bricks were laid.
The children of the kindergarten, together with Fatima and the mayor of Um al Nasser, were present to celebrate this important moment, participating in the symbolic laying of a brick!
The reconstruction of the woman center is an act of hope for the future of the Um al Nasser families!
Women have been in fact severely affected by the latest conflict and do not have a place where they can be supported and helped. The new women’s center will host a counceling and psychological support service, and two laboratory (tailoring and carpentry) that will enable women to learn a job and to have an active role in their own society.
The first important step has been taken!
But we still need your help to continue the reconstruction of the Children’s Land: the next building in fact will be the kindergarten!
