VPM - Enjoy and Learn Swimming

"Enjoy and Learn swimming"
A free swimming summer camp for more than 100 children from North Gaza.
Activities were in a newly excavated swimming pool completed with a contribution from The Italian Centre for Cultural Exchanges (VIK) in Gaza.

Apart from acquiring swimming skills, fostering a near normal social milieu, the program was critical for the rehabilitation of these children who exhibited latent or overt features of PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to the hostile occupation and repeated military attacks.
