Jaffa, 15 October 2007.
Les volontaires du centre de al rowwad ont pris l’initiative d’emmener 15 gamins du camp de refugies de aida, situe a Bethlehem pour une sortie a la mer, a Jaffa.
Pour la plupart c etait leur premiere sortie a la mer. Vous pouvez imaginer leur excitation durant toute la semaine. Quel plaisir de voir ces grands sourires, surtout chez des gosses difficiles. nous n'avons pu emmener que les jeunes de moins de 14 ans, au-desssus il faut une autorisation.
pour une fois, pour ceux qui etaient la l'horizon etait grand ouvert devant eux, et ils pouvaient redevenir juste des enfants.
The volunteers of Alrowwad center took the initiative to take 15 kids from Aida refugee camp to the sea in Jaffa.
For most of them it was their first time to the sea so you can imagine all their excitement. it was such a great scene to see these kids so happy especially the ones that are the most difficult. for sure they will remember this day.
unfortunatly we could not take the youth aged above 14, because they need an authorization.
for once, the horizon in front of their eyes was open, and they could be children again.
