I made this episode upon request of the Friends of Hope flowers School foundation in the Netherlands. They support the school financially and they raise awareness about the very difficult circumstances under which the school has to operate. The school is located in area C under full Israel military control and a big Israeli settlement is moving closer and closer towards the area where the school is situated.
Most of the children in the school are from refugee camps and from families that are surviving below the poverty level. The school accepts and works with children with autism, trauma and disabilities.
I spoke with the director of the school and with the occupational therapist and social worker.
This episode gives you a very concrete idea of the challenges that Palestinian have to face and the resilience and conviction to give the children a good education.
