Al-Hroub grew up in the Palestinian refugee camp, She took up the Primary School teaching Job when her husband and kids were shot at on their way back from school. Al-Hroub’s kids as a result of the attack suffered serious psychological issues. But she was able to help them recover from it by introducing her kids to certain playing techniques and games which she have used in Palestine to help a lot of kids who are lost and suffering with psychological problems of one case of attack or the other.

Pope Francis said: “A child has the right to play. Part of education is to teach children how to play because you learn how to be social through games as well as learn the joy of life.

“A population that is not well educated because of the wars, or by other reasons that exist in order not to get any education, is a population that decays. That is why I would like to highlight the noble profession of a teacher.”
