Ali and her 18-month-old sister are taking care and trying to get them clothes and toys as much as they can afford.

Lian’s cousins ​​used to live with 43 members of their family in a building in Zeyton, Gaza, and now the family is the

alike. A Palestinian man, Majid Nasr, and his family in a shack in a homeless population in Rafah. About 10 women

have gathered to make biscuits this Eid. Majid is 20 years old and used to live in northern Gaza before the war. He

families. It has increased three to four times over the years. These young people are also distributing cakes to about

help the orphans of Gaza. to bring some joy to them and that’s why they plan to show a circus in the communities in

the northern areas of Gaza on the occasion of Eid. There are about 300,000 people in Gaza who are facing the threat

of famine. Ahmad Mushta says that we We want to bring joy to the faces of children so that they can celebrate Eid.

This circus was founded in 2011 and used to teach magic tricks to children, but the building where this work was

being done was destroyed during the war. Before  the start of the war, Ahmed Mushta and his 10-member team used

to organize circuses for orphaned children in Gaza parks. If we do, there will be ruins in the background of all this.

Ahmed Mushta says that whenever we go from one place to another, there are dangers hovering over us, we have

been saved many times and injured many times. But now we only care that we have to provide psychological support

to these children so that they can forget the troubles of war.
