The Children of Gaza Face the Future

Peter Larson is one of the few Canadians to have visited Gaza since Israel’s 50-day attack in 2014. Last November, he spent 4 days there, meeting educators, professors, school administrators, farmers, fishermen and university students. He saw destroyed houses and neighbourhoods, but he saw also signs of hope and optimism. He also learned what we can do to help them.

In an informative 50 min powerpoint presentation, Peter will share his observations and conclusions. A question and answer session will follow.
