SUPPORTING CHILDREN OF PEACE
Janine uses her art to support the international charity "Children of Peace", started by her husband Richard Martin.
Children of Peace is a UK based, multi-faith charity that aims to build peace, trust and reconciliation between
Israeli and Palestinian children, aged 4-17, in the region.
Working with over 100 grassroots organisations, "Children of Peace" is helping to build a unique coalition of peace
in Gaza, Israel, Jordan and the West Bank by supporting local projects in the arts, education, health and sports.

2009 Cork Street Open Exhibition for Charity
In August this year, "Children of Peace" was the charity chosen by Kathryn Roberts, Director of the Annual Cork Street Open.
Entries came from all over the world, and the Art Show was opened by Sir Derek Jacobi, the Patron of COP. Almost £1,500 was raised
for the charity that night.
