Act for Peace

Life in the Gaza strip for one young girl

It’s May last year and Israeli airstrikes are descending over the Gaza strip.

Below, millions of innocent civilians wait for the oncoming devastation, terrified in their homes.

In one of the homes caught up in the bombing lives a young girl with her family.

They manage to make an escape during the night before their home is destroyed.

And everyone is safe - except her uncle, who stays behind.

For a long time, this young girl can’t believe what happened is real. Struck by grief, she stays in denial, traumatised by what she's seen.

But thankfully, with your support and the incredible work of our partner in Gaza, this isn't the end of her story.
