Walking with Mohammed in Gaza

20 May 2016

This 360 degree virtual reality clip immerses you in the world of Mohammed Al Kafarna, a Palestine refugee and ninth-grade student at the UNRWA Beit Hanoun Boys Prep school, as he walks home from school through the Gaza’s scarred landscape. Since 2008, there have three episodes of intense hostilities in Gaza, the most recent of which took place over 50 days in July-August 2014 which had a devastating and unprecedented impact on the lives of Palestinians. 1,462 civilians (of which 551 were children) were killed and 11,231 injured (of which 3,436 children).  The degree of destruction of civilian infrastructure, including UNRWA schools, was huge.
