Most of the 1.8 million residents of Gaza have no hope for the future according to the UN Children's Fund, UNICEF.

Children have been left deeply affected by the violence of a 50-day conflict that started last July between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups.

The fighting killed 539 children and injured almost 3000, leaving many struggling with life-long disabilities and psychological trauma.
