Hard Change

Yichia (14) and Hamam (8) come from a village in the area of Tul Karem, in the Palestinian Authority. While their parents and elder siblings cannot cross checkpoints to enter the state of Israel, the two brothers work as child beggars. The young children find themselves serving as the sole providers for their family of eleven. From dawn to dusk, soaked in rain or scorched by the sun, they stand at intersections and rely on the kindness of drivers to make their living.
