An interview by Milena Rampoldi, ProMosaik e.V.
In this post we would like to introduce you to the Gazan Association Nour El-Marifa Association (N.M.A). Nour El-Marifa is a charitable, non-governmental and nonprofit organization in Gaza. It provides educational, social, humanitarian, cultural, and development services to the people in Gaza.
2.- Lack of a sense of psychological stability: The reason for this instability are the continuous Israeli aggressions against the Gaza Strip. The vast majority of children in the Gaza Strip feels fear, anxiety and existential insecurity. 3.- Prevalence of learning difficulties among children in the Gaza Strip: this is because of the instability of the situation (of the schools in Gaza in general), and because of the lack of a sense of students’ safety in their schools. The result is first of all a reduced level of students in school and the diffusion of the phenomenon of the difficulty of learning. In our organization, we analyzed this problem to support children at school and to promote activities to help them.
4.- The increasing number of children orphaned and women widowed by the frequent wars in the Gaza Strip: Children and women suffer from emotional deprivation, are alone and abandoned. Many children and women lost their family members during the war, and also have extreme difficult economic situations to face.
