IFY sends football shoes to Yibna

The Rachel Corrie Ramadan Football Tournament is an annual community event in the Yibna neighbourhood of Rafah, developed to promote mental and physical health and community unity during a time of occupation and siege. It commemorates the life of Rachel Corrie, a human rights activist killed by the Israelis while trying to protect people in Rafah.
