Imagine this happening to a child you love!
10 April 2020 | by fabiofati8See all my reviews

EVERYONE should see this short film and understand what some people, in this case children, go through daily. Unfortunately, we only decide to act when a situation affects us personally, but this must end, we must protect those who cannot protect themselves. KNOWING that this is happening is already helping, sharing is helping, signing petitions is helping. LET'S HELP PLEASE!

It's only 7 minutes of your time! share this!

"Since the year 2000 this has happened to around 10,000 Palestinian children. My short film may only be 7 minutes long, but it packs a huge punch."
