Working in a refugee camp is demanding and challenging, the success of your stay will depend on your amount of love, patience and your willingness to understand the culture and the political situation. Here, the people face restricted access and limited privileges to health care, they live in a tough environment and are not recognized as a citizen with full rights.
I will forever be grateful for this journey, for all of the lessons I learned from the wonderful kids in Karama, from the elder who explained to me how the conflict has had an universal impact for the past 65 years. I want to express my deep respect for the kids of Deheishe, never complaining and living as any other child. Karama is a great place to growth.
I am leaving Deheishe Refugee Camp with a heart full of gratitude for all I have , I came with an open heart and contributed at a modest level, I am blessed for not struggling to preserve my dignity and my freedom.
I also want to express my admiration for Antoinette, for her dedication and her hard work to make Karama a place where kids can express themselves.
I will definitely come back for a new journey, InshAllah!
Thank you to all.
