Sima Al-Ghawaly is a student from Bethlehem.

 

Sima and her community have created a Bethlehem Children's Camp using community resources and fundraising connections to address the needs of children abused during COVID.  She began developing the project two weeks ago. After many conversations, she acquired a pro-bono staff of Sisters from St.Joseph's Nursery School, youth leaders, professional psychologists, parents;  insurance, food, and supplies are donated from the community.
