Abu Majid and Umm Majid Story

“The sea is the only breather for Gazans under blockade”
The sea means so much in the lives of Abu Majid and Umm Majid
Umm Majid says: We’ve been swimming in the sea every morning for the past 5 years even during winter. We swim for an hour in the winter and for an hour and a half in the summer then I head to my job as doctor in a hospital
Abu Majid adds: I started swimming when I was 16, I loved swimming in Almajdal and Jaffa and I dream of going back there. I swam in Turkey and Spain but found that swimming is only enjoyable in Palestine

He continues: Swimming has many benifits on our health and our immunity

I like swimming with my wife despite what the society thinks about that and the critism
