Aisha’s Story

My name is Aisha, I am 15 years old and live in the north of the Gaza strip, near Beit Hanoun.
I have 6 brothers and 2 sisters; our father left us when we were young, but my older brother helped to raise me and my siblings.
You might think this is the most difficult part of my story? I live in Gaza, which has been under blockade for almost 10 years. We are not allowed to move or to receive goods, we don’t have enough food, electricity or clean water to drink, we are simply trapped in this tiny strip, waiting and hoping for someone to help us.
