Since the first day, when all the unfamiliar faces started getting connected with names, up to the last day, when saying goodbye to all of the volunteers was like saying goodbye to the close family members back home, I definitely learnt and shared a lot with everyone.
The activities with the children, the laughter we shared and all the handshakes we got and gave, were definitely the best moments I had during the work camp. I gained a lot from the children and they made me feel so welcome and good about what I was doing that I even forgot I was a volunteer and just felt more like one of them.
The two weeks spent in Nablus were very intense. We saw a lot, we experienced a lot and some of the things we did or experienced were harsh on all of us. Still, it was all worth it and I think I speak for everyone when I say that we all learnt a lot during these two weeks. From the stories of the eyewitnesses, to the trips to Bethlehem and Hebron and the presentations the invited lecturers prepared for us, the camp made us feel and understand the Palestine they wish for and the one they live in. And this is something I will never forget and I will always carry with me.
Overall, I think it was an amazing experience, which I recommend to everyone. And the only thing that made me sad was to have to say goodbye to everyone after the wonderful time we had together.
