The camp has support the role of young children in their society, where they recieved courses in civil defense, first aid, and supported their confidence to speak up and be stronger.

In addition, the camp raised donations that have contributed to sending three aid trucks to Gaza, especially in corporation with interantional volunteers and associations.

The camp is part of the “Do Not Kill Our Childhood” campaign which was launched in the beginning of June to protect Palestinian children.

According to statistics, within the past 16 years, over 2,000 Palestinian children have been killed and 12,000 detained. During the past ten months alone, 51 Palestinian children have been killed by Israeli Forces.

The numbers keep growing with the now half century old occupation that keeps engorging land, strangling peace and politicizing pure children.
