CTM initiates the rehabilitation of the playground of the Ghassan Kanafani Cultural Foundation Early Childhood Center in Burj El Barajneh camp for Palestinian refugees in Beirut.

The Early Childhood Centre run by Ghassan Kanafani Cultural Foundation in Burj El Barajneh camp for Palestinian refugees in Beirut is a three-storey building situated in a narrow alleyway. For the presence of several other buildings, little light and air circulate in the lower part of the building, so that the only outdoor place is the roof terrace which hosts a playground for children. This area, however, is not properly designed and equipped for this purpose.

As part of the initiative to strengthen social and educational services for minors in Mar Elias, Burj Barajneh and Rashidieh camps for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, co-funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, CTM kicked off the works to rehabilitate the terrace. The aim is to make the play area suitable for children … a safe and functional place, where children will be able to perform their outdoor recreation activities.
