Partners who work for the Church of Scotland in Israel Palestine recently reported on a visit to Gaza where they saw the work of the NECC psychosocial play centre. Children in Gaza under 10 have lived through 3 wars and daily life is constrained and difficult. There are shortages of food and electricity. Many children and their families are short of food and family members have been killed or injured. John, Annette and Kate say, 'We saw the work of the staff in creating a beautiful loving space for them to be themselves, do some dancing and art and music and share with each other about their lives in a safe space.' With friends from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland we are holding a concert on Friday 26th April at 7.30pm to raise funds to let the children play.
