The Hanan Sweet Factory produces Arab candies and desserts in Gaza City.
“At first I thought it would be difficult, I didn’t know how I would communicate with him,” Muhammad al-Ghazali, the owner of the factory, told The Electronic Intifada about hiring the first worker.
“But when he came to work I found he had high concentration and very good talent.”
“When I first came here, my job was to put nuts on sweets. But I learned and developed new skills and started making them from scratch,” says Mouin al-Siksik, a worker at the factory.
