ABDALLAH VIDEO EXPLORES HOPE AND HARDSHIP FOR WEST BANK FAMILY
Project Rozana’s latest video explores the world of Abdallah, as he and his mother navigate the daily journey from their home in a village near Hebron to the Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem.
Written and directed by British filmmaker, Lucy Lyon, we learn about the life-saving service, Road to Recovery, which operates in Israel and in the West Bank. Without that service, it’s unlikely that Abdallah’s family could meet the cost of transport Abdallah needs to receive daily treatment to survive kidney disease.
The video is uplifting and heart-breaking. With Lucy’s deft touch, we begin to understand why volunteer drivers – Israeli and Palestinian – dedicate themselves to meeting the needs of this small, beautiful and vulnerable child.
We also witness hope, dedication and a shared belief that people of goodwill can work towards a better future by focusing on the needs of defenseless children.
