Kids displaced by December floods in Gaza receive school supplies, winter clothes

Unprecedented levels of rain and snow on the Gaza Strip left thousands of Palestinians homeless, stranded, and cold this winter.

 Mohammed Shbeir, 11, lives in one of the lowest regions of Gaza, near the Sheikh Radwan pool. This pool, which collects rainwater, flooded after it was unable to absorb the flow of 4.5 feet of rainfall this winter.
