Another Mural in Gaza

By Joanne Osband

Our second mural in Gaza as part of the Maia Mural Project was painted at  Al-Shati Kindergarten, in Beach Camp, on the outside wall. The inspiration came from one day at the Summer Camps that take place in Gaza City. About 15,000 schoolchildren in the summer camps of UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Work Agency) flew around 10,910 hand made kites. It broke the record registered last year in China when people flew 10,565 kites.

Here is the sketch for the mural:
