Meanwhile, Hakaya group performed folkloric dancing to display Palestinian tradition and culture, and simulate Palestinians’ longing for peace and stability, “We have concentrated our efforts over many years to engage children with and without disabilities in diverse cultural and social activities to fight and change negative societal attitudes locally and internationally against people with disability”, commented Mr. Shehadeh at the end of the show.

In the closing speech, Sir Fean expressed his solidarity with the Palestinian people, and pledged for making high efforts to assure a better future for Palestinian children.
