05 January 2018

The Palestiniadi (the Palestinian Olympics) is a three-day sports event for children and youth living in Palestine refugee camps and gatherings in Lebanon. As UNRWA-UNICEF Communications Officer Ghazi al-Omari explains in this film, the event brings together more than 300 participants, including Palestine refugee children from Lebanon, Palestine refugee children from Syria in Lebanon and Lebanese children, to compete in different sports activities. This year marks the ninth edition of the Palestiniadi, which started in 2008. “I hope that these children look at the bright side of their lives and try to overcome all the struggles,” says al-Omari.
