Zubair Hoosen – South Africa
This was a very interesting experience for me. There were so many people from different countries. I enjoyed the many discussions we had between western and Palestinian Muslim culture. There were many moments of laughter that we (local & internationals) shared, and then there were times where people told stories which brought a tear to many.
I will never forget a kid in drama class. We were playing a game where everyone was asked to close their eyes and think of a happy place. The kid, nine years old, mentioned his happy place when he will meet with his dad in Paradise. (His father was killed by an Israeli soldier two years earlier.) This brought tears to all the volunteers that were in the class.
In the evening we were always taken to a different and exciting place. I will always remember the breathtaking views of Nablus from these rooftops. Thanks to Zajel for organizing such an interesting and informative work camp. I look forward to visiting Nablus again… soon!
