As part of the Room to Read workshop for local Jordanian writers, publishers and illustrators, 600,000 Arabic books were created to give out to public schools and refugees in Jordan for free. Dina Fawakhiri was amongst the illustrators trained in this 5 day intense workshop. As a result, her illustrations of the Arabic book “Goodnight Mother”, written by Hiyam Abu Al Adas and published by Majdalawi Masterpieces , was one of the many distributed to children across Jordan.
“Yesterday we brought our vibrant children’s books to The Collateral Repair Project, where Iraqi, Yemeni, Sudanese, Palestinian and Syrian families huddled for storytelling time! Every public school in the country will receive 4 copies of these books with the remainder going to local refugee camps and disenfranchised communities. Thank you to everyone who helped make these 600,000 books happen.”
