A letter by a young Palestinian girl willing her possessions in the event of her death: “Hi, My name is Haya and this is my will: 1, My Cash, 80 Shekels : 45 go to mom, 5 to Zainah, 5 to Hashim, 5 to grandma, 5 to auntie Hiba, 5 to auntie Mariam, 5 to uncle Aboud and 5 to auntie Sara. 2, My toys and all other stuff to my friends Zaina, Rima, Minna, Amal and my sister. 3, My clothes to my cousins. What is left goes to charity. 4, My shoes go to the needy children, after cleaning them of course”.
