More Books, Science and a FUNDAY in Mafraq

Bal’ama, a small town in the Mafraq governorate, had received the very first ‘Yalla Niqra’ (‘Let’s Read’) library library in 2015. It was great to be able to return and donate an additional 125 books thanks to the support from Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation’s 2018 grant.

To mark the occasion and involve the children, we arranged a FUNDAY at the Bal’ama Youth Center attended by a lively group, mostly boys this time. They thoroughly enjoyed the simple science experiments based on some of the new library books. This was followed by a session of games, arts-and-crafts and gifts.

Thank you to volunteers Hedaia, Abed, Mohammad, Bailasan, Mohamed and Abdalrahman. And to Canary for the additional treats included in the gift packages.

Thank you to ABDUL HAMEED SHOMAN FOUNDATION as the main sponsor of ‘Yalla Niqra’
