Six year old Afif lives in Jayous village, close to the barrier that divides the West Bank and Israel.


Soldiers regularly enter a gate near Afif's house. And they come into his home.


SOT Afif Thaeir / Shamasheh:
"I only get scared from soldiers when they come to our house. Soldiers scare me."


SOT Farouk Khrisheh / Afif's Teacher:
"I noticed that he has fear, his studies are suffering. It's difficult to control him in class."


UNICEF work's with the European Commission Humanitarian aid department, or ECHO … to help Palestinian children and their families cope with the violence that haunts their daily lives.


SOT Herve Caiveau / Head of Office / ECHO West Bank and Gaza:
"The project is about protecting childhood in the Palestinian territories."


It starts by giving children opportunities to play in safety.

SOT Mustafa Oumar / YMCA Project Co-ordinator:
"Because of UNICEF funding we have high flexibility, we are able to carry out the emergency interventions, it very important that this funding to continue because psychologists need continuous training."


The programs, which ECHO has been supporting since 2003, give priority to poorer families, especially those living in refugee camps.


SOT Herve Caiveau / Head of Office / ECHO West Bank and Gaza:

It would mean that there was no need for humanitarian aid any more and we had moved to another stage which is development normalization of political situation and social and economic situation but we are not there yet."


Counselling has given Afif the means to express his fear.


His school work has improved and his whole family has benefited from the change.


SOT Raidah Shamasheh / Afif's mother:
"I was so happy. Even we went to visit his grandparents during the curfew, he wasn't scared. He was his normal self."


Until a political solution is achieved, normal will continue to be a relative term for Palestinian families.


But through their on-going commitment to children like Afif … ECHO and UNICEF will continue to provide a window
into what a carefree childhood should be --- and by offering that glimpse, however briefly, they can equip children to deal w
