Yasmin Gebara is a very special young woman from the village of Salem near Nablus. Yasmin is blind from birth. In September 2004, Yasmin’s father Saael, a taxi driver, was killed in cold blood by a settler who later managed to escape the country before going to prison.
Last month as Yasmin graduated from Nablus University with an English major, we sent an email asking for donations of English literature CD’s, and possibly a Braille dictionary. Faster than lightning, Jamal and Georgina from London answered our call. For the full story and images, visit the Villages Group blog.
