Italians to Sponsor Palestinian Kids

Italian celebrities, town councils and businesses are intending to participate in a two-year program under which 1,000 Palestinian children in Israeli-administered territories will become long distance foster children of Italian sponsors.

According to the published reports, the sponsors will each pay $80 a month toward support of a child. The money is to be deposited in an Italian bank which is linked with a bank in Jerusalem.
