Waseem A. F. is a young man from Deir A.-Balah in Gaza Strip. Waseem and his mother, who work in a UN school, are responsible for the household expenses. Waseem has a generA. store where he sells accessories, gift items, books and stationary. The store is located in front of a school in Deir A.-Balah and next to the city clinic, which guarantees customers.
