The European Union and the Palestinian Authority inaugurated a multipurpose building and public park in Daher al-Abed village in Jenin governorate. Daher al-Abed is located in Area C of the West Bank. The project amounted to €300,000 to support building the social infrastructure in the village. This multipurpose building will serve as premises for the village council, sport youth club and multipurpose hall for social and public events of the local community. The public park also intends to serve nearby villages and communities. The open space the public park created will allow Palestinians in the area to start up some local economic initiatives within the village.
The support received from the EU Member States to support similar projects is channelled through the European Union Area C Development Programme in the West Bank.
