The Leichhardt Friends of Hebron hold a number of events across the year with a dual focus of fundraising for our kindergarten projects in the Mount South Hebron Hills of the occupied Palestinian territories and to raise awareness of the issues faced by the Palestinian population in Israel, the occupied territories and the refugee diaspora.
