What are the Gaza Summer Games?
Every year The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) holds the Gaza Summer Games, a 6-week summer recreational and educational program organized for the children of Gaza. At Summer Games, over 250,000 children receive daily meals and physiological relief while participating in art, theater, sports, beach games and music, in summer camps across the Gaza Strip.
