Art Activity in Gulaan school, Shah Mansoor Camp, Swabi

by Joyce David & Baela R Jamil

Fauzia Minallah from Funkor Childart and her volunteers were absolutely phenomenal as they helped today in Mural Making with the IDPs at the Gulaan Elementary School ITA requested Fauzia when she shared the work she had undertaken at Hassan Abdal with the minority IDPs in Panjah Sahib. She immediately responded and agreed to help us in our early days of work at Shah Mansoor Camp. She came wiht her volunteers including two students "Saleha and Iman" and beautifully worked with the children.. helping them touch their innermost core where there are colours, beauty and images of harmony.. Three cloth murals were produced and hung, instantly beautifying the bare walls of the healing and learning centre. They later distributed goody bags with stationary and ludo/balls etc. This was deeply appreciated. Inam ITA's resident artist and craftsman was there to facilitate the activty. He has been working with the children and teachers since Tuesday. More photos can be seen by Friday afternoon June 19th at ( descent into chaos) Rooh Afza and biscuits were also provided to beat the heat and hunger pangs.. ! Our sincere gratitude to Fauzia and her group for being there for us and for IDPs! What a joy...what immense giving ! Joyce DavidBaela R Jamil
