Total amount: EUR 30,000 (2011)
Start date: June 15, 2011
Duration: 2 months each summer from 2011-2014

Caritas Germany and War Child Holland have each provided EUR 10,000 for DanChurchAid to help create a more positive environment for children with and without disabilities who suffer from war trauma.
The Summer Camp helps 900 children living with their families in frontline war communities in Northern Gaza.
The children joining the Summer Camp participate in a range of social and creative activities.
Children with and without disabilities meet and play, which promotes the integration of the disabled children in the community and changes the children's attitudes to be more positive.
The project involves important actors in the children’s everyday lives, e.g. their parents, relatives, teachers, social workers, community leaders and psychological professionals.
