Playgrounds for Palestine – An Act of Love

Presented by Hanan Urick. This project is an expression of solidarity with the plight of children and an affirmation of their right to childhood. There are 36 playgrounds in Palestine, Syria and Lebanon, and many happy children. Hanan will also talk about SkateQilya, a skateboarding camp for boys and girls in Palestine that Playgrounds for Palestine has sponsored for the past three summers.

Hanan Urick is a first generation Palestinian-American. She is a mom, pharmacist, school volunteer and children’s rights advocate. Her involvement in Playgrounds for Palestine stems from her love of children and her strong beliefs in the merits of play. Hanan will bring olive oil and ceramics from Palestine to sell for the benefit of Playgrounds for Palestine.

Following this will be a short documentary “Flying Paper” which tells the uplifting story of resilient youth in the Gaza Strip on a quest to shatter the Guinness World Record for the most kites ever flown.
