LOSS OF INNOCENCE: GAZA CHILDRENíS ARTWORK
Frome Friends of Palestine are proud to announce that Frome will be hosting an important exhibition of childrenís art. Last yearís bombardment of Gaza left at least 300 children dead, and over 1400 children lost one or both of their parents. A third of children now suffer from mental health problems and all of them are traumatized.
With the support of UNESCO, children throughout the Gaza Strip were encouraged to express their experience in art to help the therapeutic process. Rod Cox, who spent two months in Gaza after the bombardment working on the project, returned to Britain with an impressive selection of pictures, and he promised the children that he would display them to as many people as possible in the world outside the prison camp that is Gaza.
