GAZA, PALESTINE

November 16, 2014

Shorouk Abu Ouda, 11 years old, is looking at the rain falling on the ruins of her neighborhood. Shady Abu Ouda, Shorouk's father, is 34, and is married and has 6 children. His house, built by his father, was partially destroyed by the #bombings of the summer of 2014. In this building also lived his father, his mother, and five of his brothers with their families. When the war began, they all took refuge in a @unrwa (Palestine Refugee Assistance Agency in the Middle East) school. When the ceasefire was announced in August 2014, Shady and the family (including their parents and siblings) returned home while they hoped to accumulate enough money to rebuild it.

 

For our first time visiting Brazil, we've placed Virginie Nguyen Hoang's image at Avenida Vinte e Três de Maio.
