R. R., who is from Jabalia Refugee Camp and a father of two boys, has started a unique project in the camp: he has opened the first zoo in the Gaza Strip. R. wanted to give the children of the camp and the Gaza Strip a place where they could enjoy themselves.
R. used all his savings to make this project happen. Now he has come to FATEN to take a $2,000 loan to purchase tables and chairs for the zoo’s children's garden.
