“’Love Not War’, these are the words written on the wall behind

“’Love Not War’, these are the words written on the wall behind me. This is the message I wanted to deliver when I joined a community initiative to beautify this small public park in #Gaza with lively colours. I am half Indian from my mother’s side, but I was able to visit my grandparents in India only once in 2007 due to the Gaza blockade. The most striking difference I found between India and Gaza is that here you will find people whose ultimate dream is to travel outside of Gaza; whereas in India most people do not think to leave – they live a ‘normal’ life with ‘normal’ dreams, like buying a new house. In India, they are always building and developing, while in Gaza we are always re-repairing what has been destroyed, over and over again.” Karima, 17. @unicefpalestine is sharing daily portraits of children in Gaza for 51 days to mark a year since last year’s 51 day conflict.‪ #‎51days51children‬ UNICEF SoP/Eyad El Baba
