An effort to create a long lasting memorial to Abir Aramin, where children can be children and safely step out of the occupation and into their imagination. Former fighters will work side by side to build the playground, helping Abir's friends and the world see that there are people who care for children and work together for justice and peace. Abir's Garden is a playground, designed by Combatants for Peace members working w the Parents Committee at the Anata School for Girls in E. Jerusalem.
