An inspiring video of using the "trash" in the landfills of these slums to make life just a little bit better. They have recycled the trash around them to create musical instruments that they then use in music classes that make school and life for the kids a lot better. They are learning to play the violin even though a violin is worth more than their home. It is inspiring to see, and it is interesting to realize how much music has changed these people's lives while many music programs in the US are in danger of getting cut. A great video to watch and to see how an oil barrel with a couple of pieces of wood and some string can sound exactly like a cello!
A United Nations report cites widespread shortages of food, water, electricity, jobs, hospital beds and classrooms amid an exploding population in an area of Gaza.
While most slums are symptomatic of issues that would be addressed by an economic and urban geography analysis, the slums of Gaza are different. Many slum issues are tied to city politics, but in Gaza these slums are also connected to some of the larger geopolitical issues of the region.

People in the Gaza strip are already fearful Israel around them because of the fighting between the two areas. When people think of Gaza, they think of the Palestine-Israel conflict, but there is much more going on in Gaza. Israel blocks Gaza off from all forms of trade, and although they have a tunnel between them and Egypt, it is not enough. Therefore, there are slums where children do not go to school because their parents cannot afford it, people starve because they have no money to buy food, and people live in small shelters that they built out of some materials they put together and sleep on the ground. This is a squatter community, and, as the article states, there are squatter communities in worse shape, the problem here is that everyone is pointing fingers and no one is trying to fix the problem. Many state that Israel has caused this poverty because of their oppressive control of the area and others state that it is Gaza's government because they are corrupt and new and cannot or do not distribute their food well. This is a problem, but when no one takes the blame, innocent people suffer.
