Stories / Gallery: First time at the beach
Palestinian kids from Ramallah on their way to the beach in Tel Aviv for the first time in their lives. The city of Ramallah is just 30 minutes drive away from the coast of Tel Aviv. However, the passage of Palestinians into the State of Israel is very difficult due to certificate requirements. Duration of certification approval is roughly 2 weeks. In order to get to the bus which takes them to Tel Aviv, the children and their mothers are forced to go through several checkpoints and routine unpleasant searches by the Israeli authorities. Day trip to the beach is being enabled thanks to a few Israeli peace activist women.
