Two hundred children enjoyed the entertainment by clowns, face-painting and other amusements in the heart of the Old City on 5 august 2010.

The activities were arranged in cooperation with the TIPH and the Dream Society, with the support of 30 volunteers from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.

— Having activities like this in coordination with local organizations is a very good way to interact with the community. The children in the Old City face a lot of problems in their daily lives, especially during the summer holiday when there are very few activities for them. Therefore it was wonderful to see the children from this deprived area painting, playing and laughing, the TIPH Community Relations Officer Nasrin Hoseini says.
