Computers arrive from Craig of craigslist!!

Just in the nick of time for the first day of TYO’s summer programs tomorrow, the computers donated by Craig Newmark of craigslist got to the TYO Nablus Center this afternoon! They had been held up at a checkpoint, and were possibly to be delayed until later this week. But they got in just in time, and we set them up on the locally-made, customized desks in a newly painted classroom!

Check out other pictures of our preparations for the summer on Facebook! And wish us luck with 500 little ones tomorrow 🙂

TYO sponsors women’s health event in Nablus-area village

Thanks to cooperation with the Palme Center, TYO will host a women’s health event today from 12 – 3 pm in Beit Furik, a small village near Nablus. Our health specialist, Ahmad Hanani, has organized the event, which will provide women with expert medical and psychological information about miscarriages.

The Palme Center brought two women’s health experts from Sweden to the West Bank who will speak to about 50 women in Beit Furik today. Ahmad developed the event based on the visitors’ expertise and the women’s concerns related to problems related to early and mid-term miscarriages that are very common among the village’s population.

Thanks to the Palme Center for offering this wonderful resource, and to Ahmad for his tireless work promoting health in the TYO community!
