Aida Camp Youth Quest for Kindness

by Susan Leem, associate producer

"Every person has a story to tell" says 16-year-old Abdulfattah Da’ajna, one of three Palestinian teenagers featured in the film above who now live in Aida refugee camp in the West Bank town of Bethlehem. This short, part of a documentary project called Kindness the Movie, is produced by Kholoud Al Ajarma and Mohammad Al Azzeh, two of the people working at the Lajee Center who are featured in our show, "Pleasure More Than Hope."
