The child-friendly spaces (the Furaha Centers), managed by Waldorf, are currently closed for regular play activities due to COVID-19, however, some case management activities are still ongoing. Children have been playing outside the centers and partners have been engaging with them in adherence with physical distancing guidelines where they play.

IsraAID has developed child-friendly radio spots on COVID-19 prevention and psycho-social support, which are aired on Atanayece Radio Station 90.1 FM every day at 6:30am, 9:10 am, 1:30 pm and 7:30pm. Children and caregivers can call or SMS IsraAID on 0800720697 with feedback and questions.
