In an effort to help Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip, a group of Muslim activists are organizing a walk to draw attention to the plight of Israel-blockaded territory, where nearly two million people are living in miserable living conditions.
According to Muslim Hands, over half a million Palestinian refugees in Gaza live in eight refugee camps, which have one of the highest population densities in the world.
Gaza has one of the highest birth rates in the world. As the territory is plagued by extreme poverty and conflicts, many mothers can’t access the care they need.
The walk will be held in nine cities around the UK from January-February. For locations and dates check this link.
