Christian Aid gave disposable cameras to children and teenagers in Gaza, for them to record scenes from their daily lives, and asked them to write captions to accompany.
These ‘postcards from Gaza’ show how living under occupation affects children, putting a human face on reports of shortages, economic collapse and worsening poverty caused by Israel’s blockade of Gaza over the past four years.
All of these young people attend centres run by Christian Aid partner the Culture and Free Thought Association (CFTA).

CFTA offers counselling and support for children, and provides a safe space to play, learn, and make friends. This work is critical for providing new hope to damaged children, both for their own sakes, and for the sake of the future of Palestinian society and a future peace with Israel.
This slideshow of the children’s own pictures and photographs of CFTA’s work was shown at Greenbelt festival this year, as Trust Greenbelt and the EU have committed to funding CFTA over a three-year period.
