Description

The first action group workshop aims to give support to young mothers dealing with the stress of the conflict along border with Gaza. Strengthening them will reduce the pressure on the government to retaliate and escalate the conflict. These young mothers have created a series of meetings with the aim to develop a support group that provides stress reducing activities and hopefully meet their Palestinian counterparts. This support group identifies the needs of their peers and seek to alleviate those needs.
