Dear friends of Cinema Jenin,
I just came back from a trip to Jenin with Johannes, our architect and 5 other German professionals to prepare the main phase of the renovation which will start in August.
30 volunteers from all over the world agreed to spend their summer holidays in Jenin to help renovating or to make workshops with the kids in Jenin. Realizing that not everybody of the volunteers can sleep at Fakhris place, we decided to rent a house next to the cinema and to renovate it as our Cinema Jenin hostel. Soon you can check fotos and the process of the renovation of the guesthouse.
During the renovation the guesthouse will enable us to offer free accommodation for all the volunteers including breakfast and one meal a day. In the future Cinema Jenin Guesthouse will be a place for every visitor to stay in Jenin.
The renovation of the guesthouse will cost around 15.000 Euro. In addition to that we will have to buy beds, refrigerators, table war, kitchen staff etc.
There is not much time until the middle of July, but we are looking forward to finish the renovation as fast as possible and move in the guesthouse in the beginning in August the latest.
