This Autumn, Interpal’s illustration competition asked aspiring artists and illustrators to contemplate what ‘Palestine is’ to them.

On the final day of our competition we were delighted to receive several submissions from an orphanage located just outside of Hebron in the West Bank.

The children had heard about our competition and sent in their drawings, with messages of hope, light, and a positive vision for Palestinian future.

Take a look at their drawings and let us know what you think. We will be sending a thank you card to the orphans in the New Year and we’d love to include messages from our supporters in the UK.
