Daily Hugz bring special-needs children from six refugee camps to our sanctuary to experience life in a way they ordinarily cannot. From playing in the dirt and growing their own vegetables to sharing a quiet moment with a dog or donkey, these experiences are not readily accessible to any child in a Palestinian refugee camp and even further removed for children with special-needs who live in the camps. These camps, all built in 1950 or 1952, have not been allowed to enlarge their borders, but populations have skyrocketed. For comparison's sake, New York City's population density is 26,403 people per square mile. The density in these camps is up to almost five times as packed.
