Gaza Muslim Women Spread Holiday Cheer by Sewing Santa Claus Dolls

A group of Muslim women in northern Gaza have been spreading the holiday cheer by sewing Santa Claus dolls for Christmas.

The women from the Palestinian enclave work in a factory that allows them to generate a personal income and provide Christmas gifts for those wishing to purchase them.

Some 20 young women are employed at the factory, which is a project of the Zeina Cooperative in the village of Umm al-Nasser, close to Beit Hanoun.

The women have been given three years of vocational training, learning to make gifts not only for Christmas but for a series of holidays – including the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, supervisor Asthma Abu Qaida told AFP.
