(despite my partner currently being very ill in hospital I can never give up hope)
The two pictures included here are of Children playing on the beach in Gaza and on the streets of Palestine.
There are close to 800,000 children currently living in Gaza, they make up more than half the population.
Despite the heartbreak they have suffered, it is amazing that these children can still find time to play, smile and flash peace signs despite of the terror and hatred that no child should ever have to face. They and the people of Gaza, continue to give us hope and will be forever remembered for their courage and resilience theyhave shown the world in the most trying of times.
Increasingly isolated by a blockade that prevents anyone rebuilding their homes and their lives.
They remind me, that we should never give up hope.
Hope and Play is an organisation that helps to provide the children in occupied Palestinian territories and refugee camps the chance to play, live and learn.
