The situation

An instable political situation, everlasting warlike conflicts and lack of perspective are shaping children and adolescents in Bethlehem, West Jordan Land. Many of them had to face, how friends and family have been hurt or even killed. There are only a few places and chances, for children to play unburdened. Resulting, the situation has and will be changed in a cooperation of SOS Kinderdörfer and skate-aid. All together are enabled the construction of a skatepark, which combines and facilitates something that the children in Bethlehem truly need, namely sportive action, letting of steam and interacting in a group.
