From Tent Life Springs







Walking through destruction area in Azebit Abed Rabo , we arrived to Mr.Majed Al- atamnaa house. He lives with his family consist of 8 members in simple and small house. His house was destructed by Israeli thanks during the last war on Gaza. and after that he had lived in a refugee camp, So he had suffered in winter when it rained as water comes through the holes inside tent.

Mr. Majed is unemployed since 2000, and the majority of his family are children and students. So his house was nominated to benefit from the project Re-build destructed houses, which implemented by UNRWA aids ,and cost more than 10,000$ . his house was the first house in Gaza which built by mud.

The main goal of the project is providing a suitable shelter for homeless people in this are, and also providing psychosocial and economical support to re-establish a sence of normalcy of the lives of people.

The project helps the family to live under the suitable protection from rain, sun and dangerous animals ."what have they done is improving my life ,right now I felt the benefits of this project when it rained," Said AL-atamnaa.

But the dream is not completed , Mr.Al atamnaa's house need more services and suitable furniture .He lives without children beds, clothes, Laundromat, fridge, blankets and school supplies. So he wishes the project to continue and serve all people in this area.

Mr.Al-atamnaa's case is one of more than 20 homeless families in this refugee who are lives without any basic needs and suitable shelter .So we call upon global public to work for peace and justice in Gaza.

Childhood is lost under Gaza siege


" How can I play without freedom ? how can I play with my case is forgotten ? I am a child of the gardens of Palestinian identity, I play with stones and I make wooden weapons . This is my childhood ! take it , It is a gift from me to you " a little girl said on the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the child.

So, November 19th marks the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse, and November 20th marks The Universal Children's Day. So that , we strongly call upon the global public to work for justice ,peace ,dignity, freedom ,equality , tolerance and solidarity in Palestinian community.


Children have rights to life, play, learn, dream, healthcare and a decent future. However, Palestinian children have been living under strict siege for more than 3 years. they still suffering from ongoing and systematic violence, which effects on every aspects of their growth and development and pushed them towards armed conflicts. Also, they still working under unsafe conditions to make ends meet. In addition, they complaining from malnutrition and anemia resulting from 60 percent of the population living under poverty line according to UN.


On the other hands, collective punishment imposed by Israel against 1,5 million people, the majority of them children and adolescents, so hundreds of them killed or wounded, others, held in Israeli jails. And the rest of them have been suffering from the catastrophic impact of War Cast Lead.


Finally, in a few words, time of banners and posters are over ,we should break the silence , it is the time of real support for Palestinian children, so that I still believing that defending these rights demands real solidarity more than words. So I hope from CRC Committee and States Parties to the CRC to take appropriate measures for effective implementation of the CRC in
Palestine.

Youth Migration from Gaza


Every moment , the youth are thinking in migration from Gaza strip, Every day. When I meet youth in any activity they tell me they want to migrate outside of Gaza to any place ,I hear the youth want to migrate , I have many questions in my brain about youth migration from holy land .In fact the majority of youth are thinking to migrate because they are facing a big suffering and miserable conditions as unemployment ,Israeli occupation ,boring life and socioeconomical problems.

First , many of youth after graduations from their universities they stay without jobs for along time and they become depressed and they want to migrate to search for a job and a better life.

Second , every day, many of youth face internal violence and conflicts ,and suffer from Israeli occupation by killing and prisoning .Others become handicapped and the rest of them are forced to migrate.

Third , there aren’t place for interesting environment for youth expect the sea and Gaza Park and they became bored from visiting these places .Also every day is the same ,no changes for the better and there isn’t progress in the socioeconomical development.

Forth , they face poor socioeconomical conditions as the increase of the cost of every things and many youth stay unmarried due to these conditions.

Finally , how much I talk , you cant know the feeling of who suffering until you live same situations. And we hope to help the Gaza youth and provide them enough vacancies jobs in all fields , and activate the role of them in the society to make changes and developments in all aspects of live.
