BEIRUT: Italian Ambassador to Lebanon Guiseppe Morabito inaugurated a new playground Monday at a school in the Palestinian refugee camp of Burj al-Barajneh, south of Beirut.
The playground of Al-Qassem kindergarten was refurbished through an Italian-funded project, in cooperation with the Social Support Society.
“The main message of the project is to bring people together, to create better living conditions and to reinforce dialogue and mutual understanding.
Even with small things we can achieve great results,” Morabito said during the event, which was also attended by the Palestinian ambassador to Lebanon and representatives from UNRWA.
The project aims to create a safe area to improve the environment for more than 200 children in the camp. It is part of a broader Italian initiative for the camp.
