Issue: Lack of safe playgrounds
The initiative: Building safe football playgrounds
The Beit Hanoun town in Northern Gaza severely lacks playgrounds for its youngsters. So, they had to build their own. Despite the danger of its location as it is near the borders, the kids used to play there till one of the kids was injured; one of his figures was amputated, by the residues of the Israeli military. As a result, it is crucially important to build safe playgrounds inside the town far away from the dangerous border area.
