Spreading warmth during the winter season

Thanks to a generous donation from St. Paul’s Church in Chester, New York, TYO was able to give every child at the center in Nablus a gift-bag filled with warm winter clothes. Over 360 children aged 4-14 received a combination of sweaters, shoes, long underwear, socks, hats, scarves, underwear, and gloves.  Given that the homes and schools in the refugee camps are unheated, the children greatly appreciated their new items.  The day after the clothes were distributed, children returned to the center with beaming smiles as they sported their new warm clothes.
