Dear friends,

I wanted to update you that yesterday we had a demonstration which a group of women from Nazareth organized. The police did not want to give us a permission but never the less we stand for an hour, It was good and we had Media. The CNN interviewed me but they did not publish that, they had only a small report about the demo in Nazareth. Women from Bath Shalom Affula joined us too.

There were also good pictures in the Arabic Alithad Newspaper from yesterday’s demo in Haifa and Sachnin, So I hope to see you all tomorrow.

We in Altufula are also organizing some support for the Arab children who, as you know, have no shelters and they have to deal with their fears alone. So I hope by next week I will have a 1000 individual kits (as a beginning), to give for the children at homes. The kits have a toy, some suites, some colors and other creative materials as well as ideas and worksheets. These are aiming to support children to express their feelings. It also contains a booklet for parents on how to deal with helping their children in stressful situations. Of course if any one of you could help in finding sponsorship for more kits, please let me know
