One of Mustafa Yousef Galen’s granddaughters plays with a sparkler in front of her house in northern Beit Lahia, located in the Gaza Strip, part of the Occupied Palestinian Territories, on June 4, 2018. Mustafa (49) and his wife Amal (49) are Palestinians who live with their eight children in extreme conditions in a small house, with 17 total members of the extended family living under the same roof. Previously a prosperous farmer and landowner, Mustafa lost everything after the First Gaza War in 2008-09 when his agricultural equipment was stolen, and for the last decade he has been sick and unable to walk after being poisoned by crop pesticides. With no money to purchase potable water, Mustafa and his family drink salt water directly from the tap, causing profoundly negative affect on their health. They receive only four hours of energy a day, though regularly experience interruptions lasting two days or more, and use candles and small battery lights at night.
